This work is presenting the attenuation of coda waves in the Rif region. Using 15 broadband stations, we investigate the attenuation of coda waves utilizing the single backscattering model of aki and chouet. We collect 70 local earthquakes during 2014 for five laps time window 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60s. We computed the quality factors at different central frequencies band on which start from 1.5, 3.0, 6.0, 9.0, 12.0 and 18.0 Hz. For 40s window length, the Qc gives average value for the whole zone of about 128,51 for 1.5 Hz and 993,44 for 18 Hz band frequencies. We observed a clear dependency between the quality factor and the frequency. Also, we have found that this region is tectonic active comparing to previous studies around the world.
