Seismic tomography and the assessment of uncertainty

Rawlinson, Nicholas; Fichtner, Andreas; Sambridge, Malcolm; Young, Mallory K.


Seismic tomography is a powerful tool for illuminating Earth structure across a range of scales, but the usefulness of any image that is generated by this method is dependent on our ability to quantify its uncertainty. This uncertainty arises from the ill-posed nature of the tomographic inverse problem, which means that multiple models are capable of satisfying the data. The goal of this review is to provide an overview of the current state of the art in the assessment of uncertainty in seismic...[Show more]
