Knowledge of attenuation can be very useful in many stages of conventional seismic data processing as its removal increases resolution. Recent advances in passive seismic investigations involving microearthquakes indicate that attenuation assessment has a great potential as a direct hydrocarbon indicator and reservoir structural delineation. The purpose of this investigation is to assess the use of pulse width analysis to invert for attenuation structure.
