The variation of the amplitudes of seismic reflection data as a function of angle of incidence or offset (AVO) is a
technique that is widely applied in exploration for hydrocarbons and the characterization of reservoirs. Many
approximations of the Zoeppritz equations have been proposed, and another one is added here to add to the general
confusion. A simple method of comparing them is used here to compare two approximations with the full solution.
