Verification and validation are the two parts of quality assurance in developing new technologies. In application to seismic attributes, verification aims to confirm that the specified characteristic of a seismic signal is computed with sufficient accuracy, while validation aims to confirm that a particular attribute correlates with subsurface characteristics or with other measurements. I argue that V&V (verification and validation) should become a standard practice for users and developers of seismic attributes.
