We have demonstrated how burial history and modeling of compaction and diagenesis can be combined with rock physics modeling in order to predict expected AVO signatures for a given reservoir. This method can be used in a forward modeling way to predict seismic signatures given a known burial history. We show examples from the Barents Sea, offshore Norway, and demonstrate that the proposed methodology can be useful to screen for hydrocarbons from seismic AVO data if knowledge/information about net erosion (uplift) is available.
