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

Using similar procedure to the one described in the previous section, we can obtain a matrix form expression:

This is the linear relationship between model perturbation and data perturbation, and can be used to calculate the sensitivity kernel. Figure 6 shows the relative sensitivity kernel of the two model parameters. Both figures are clipped to the same value. Since both variables are parametrized as velocities, their updates are of similar strength, and this is an effective parametrization.
