Theoretical modeling insights into elastic wave attenuation mechanisms in marine sediments with pore-filling methane hydrate
Editors’ Highlight—Papers about attenuation in hydrate-bearing sediments are very rare. This study presents a theoretical model that combines several mechanisms that may predominate in such medium. The paper describes a workflow to estimate wave attenuation in the seismic-to-ultrasonic bandwidth. The authors propose an interesting effective inelastic model making the paper a potential good reference for methane-hydrate studies.
