Numerical modelling of high-frequency inversion is an efficient means to obtain the accurate rock physics parameters of porous media with fine structures. High frequency signals have higher resolution to resolute the fine structures. The inversion methods will be applied to investigate the internal fine structures and the corresponding rock physics parameters Data which can be obtained by utilizing the theory for the cracks and porous rocks as a foundation for measuring elastic properties of fine-structure objects using acoustic logging can be used to obtain more accurate physics parameters. Utilizing acoustic logging data and related information, we can invert and interpretate the crack density and modulus of elasticity of the porous media. Finally, we can evaluate and identify the internal fine structure and the fluids in the porous medium.
