Early-arrival waveform inversion for near-surface velocity and anisotropic parameters: modeling and sensitivity kernel analysis |

where and are the two model variables, assuming

By combining this with equation 2, we can obtain

which can be written in the following matrix form:

This establishes a linear relationship between model perturbation and data perturbation, and can be used to calculate the sensitivity kernel. Figure 5 shows the relative sensitivity kernels of the two model parameters, which are defined as

where is the sensitivity kernel, and is the relative sensitivity kernel. the clipping value of the top figure is over sixteen orders of magnitude larger than the bottom figure, which means if we are to use this parametrization for our inversion, there will be almost no updates of the anisotropic parameter.
