When seismic waves propagate through the Earth, they are affected by numerous inelastic effects of the medium. These effects are usually characterized by the concept of the Q-factor and lead to variations of spectra of the signal and shapes of the waveforms, which further affect the results of reflection seismic imaging. Attenuation compensation, also often called the inverse Q filtering is a signal-processing procedure broadly used to compensate both of these effects of attenuation in reflection sections or volumes. The objective of this thesis is to present and investigate a new attenuation-compensation approach that is much more general than the conventional inverse Q filtering.
