Our contribution is divided into two parts: in the first we discuss the mechanism (based on generalised Zener body) used to incorporate attenuation into our forward modelling engine, and the manner we manage the efficient building of the FWI gradient in 3D. The second part deals with the application of mono- and multi-parameter (velocity only in visco-acoustic media, and velocity-attenuation joint inversion, respectively) FWI to a 3D OBC dataset from the Valhall field.
