Curvature attributes

Curvature attributes measure the degree of bending of seismic reflections along a surface or in a volume and help to improve interpretation and structural understanding of 3D seismic data volumes. Different curvature attributes identify subtle faults, fractures, and other features better than other attribute applications. Arcis offers volume computation of curvature, together with their spectral estimates.
