This term speaks to the situation where tiny spaces in geologic

structure (pores) are filled with a fluid, be it water or petroleum

(crude oil or natural gas). The quality and the microstructure of a

geologic mass, and the presence of fluids in it, will determine how

seismic waves are both propagated through it and reflected by

it.
