Summary Spectral decomposition uses the discrete Fourier transform to quantify thin-bed interference and detect subtle discontinuities. For reservoir characterization, our most common approach to viewing and analyzing spectral decompositions is via the “Zone-of-Interest Tuning Cube”. Spectral balancing removes the wavelet overprint. The amplitude component excels at quantifying thickness variability and detecting lateral discontinuities. The phase component detects lateral discontinuities.
