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

Using a procedure similar 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 7 shows relative sensitivity kernel of the two model parameters. Both figures are clipped to the same value. With this parametrization, updates of both variables are of the same order of strength. I show in another paper [citation] that such parametrization results in very good inversion results.
