The amplitude of a seismic refraction event is determined by the properties of rocks through which the seismic waves travel, the amplitude of the shot and the offset at which the refraction is recorded. A surface-consistent, non-linear inversion scheme, which uses the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm, has been developed which aims to extract near-surface rock properties from the measured refraction amplitudes. Perhaps the most important challenge to extracting a unique, geologically plausible… CONTINUE READING
