Abstract

The accuracy, validity, and range of application of geophysical tomography (geotomography) has recently been significantly improved by the incorporation of refraction and first-order reflection into the inversion process. This is done by means of an iterative refinement scheme, which exhibits stability problems under certain conditions. In this paper, the stability improvements of selective smoothing and path elimination are introduced which, along with guidelines for their application developed through experience with many computer simulations, results in a much more stable geotomographic technique. -from AuthorsDept. of Electrical Engineering, West Virginia Univ., Morgantown, W.V. 26506, USA.
