The Wyllie time-average equation is an equation that relates sonic velocities with the porosity of a rock. The equation is as follows:

and can be rewritten in terms of interval travel-times as,

where, is the total porosity, is the wave's measured phase velocity, is the velocity of the rock matrix, and is the velocity of the fluid in the pores.
