structural model in mines usually is very complex

large and abrupt changes in velocity at cavities

the model varies in time

Motivation

Waveform modelling

MTI

strategy

earthquake source is complex (single forces, non-DC components, complex source history)

Synthetic tests

Summary

the most promising approach: full waveform MTI

simplified time-domain MTI is robust and stable

two-step time-frequency MTI improves the performance by considering more complex source-time function

inversion of blasts reveals some stable DC part
