A Method of Measuring Acoustic Wave Attenuation in the Laboratory
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 1987)The measurement of attenuation is performed by directly determining the attenuation operator (or the impulse response of the medium) in the time domain. In this way, it is possible to separate the attenuation operator ... 
Microquake seismic interferometry with SVD enhanced Green's function recovery
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Earth Resources Laboratory, 2011)The conditions under which seismic interferometry (SI) leads to the exact Green’s function (GF) are rarely met in practice, resulting in errors in the recovered GF. To alleviate this problem, we employ additional information ...
