Surface wave dispersion curve inversion is a challenging problem for linear inversion procedures due to its highly non-linear nature and to the large numbers of local minima and maxima of the objective function (multi-modality). In order to improve the reliability of the inversion results, we implemented and tested a two-step inversion scheme based on Genetic Algorithms (GAs). The proposed scheme performs several preliminary “parallel” runs (first step) and a final global run using the… CONTINUE READING
