Abstract

In order to quantify differences in the elastic rock properties as a result of fabric differences, peridotite samples from the Finero complex were investigated with respect to their mineral textures and elastic properties. Our data indicate only weak to intermediate texture strengths and weak elastic anisotropy, which is too small to produce a significant acoustic contrast in a seismic experiment. Consequently, internal structures from peridotite bodies in the Earth's crust with such fabric characteristics cannot be resolved reliably.
