Ambient noise seismic reflection interferometry at the Los Humeros Geothermal Field Mexico
Esteves Martins, J.C.
In the past two decades, a limited but steadily growing number of papers were published on successful retrieval of P-wave reflections from ambient seismic noise. Subsurface reflection images can provide higher structural detail as compared to velocity images from tomographic inversion of surface waves extracted from ambient noise. But the challenge to provide reflectivity information with sufficient fidelity from ambient noise is generally much larger than producing useful images from noise tomography because the retrieved body waves are orders of magnitude weaker than surface waves.
