The attenuation of an ultrasonic wave in porous rocks has been measured by means of a spectral analysis technique in the frequency range 100 kHz-1 MHz. Experimental results, after compensation for the geometric divergence of the emitted ray beam, are presented for three types of rocks. They display two characteristics, essentially related to the nature and the structure of the probes: the quality factor Q does not depend on frequency (Q is fairly constant in the whole range of exploration): and the attenuation remains high. Experimental data are also compared to predictions obtained from different models, but only Sto1l's composite model gives predictions in fair agreement with experiments.
