An attribute describing heterogeneity is proposed based on the diffracted-wave contribution. In areas of complex geology the amount of diffracted energy will increase relative the specular reflections. By use of the modified CRS technique, a reliable measure of the diffractions can be obtained. Proper scaling with the output from a conventional CRS stack gives a normalized measure of the complexity of the geology. The new attribute has possible use both in seismic texture analysis and as a weight factor employed to combine CRS based reflection- and diffraction-enhanced stacks. The potential of the heterogeneity attribute is demonstrated using seismic data from offshore Brazil.
