Automating Seismic Waveform Analysis For Full 3-D Waveform Inversions
We present a semi-automatic seismic waveform selection algorithm that can be used in full 3-D waveform inversions for earthquake source parameters and/or earth structure models. The algorithm is applied on pairs of observed and synthetic seismograms. A pair of observed and synthetic seismograms are first segmented in the wavelet domain into a number of wave packets using a topological watershed algorithm. A set of user-adjustable criteria based on waveform similarities is then applied to match each wave packet obtained from the observed seismogram with the corresponding wave packet obtained from ...
