Love wave Dispersion curve

Post by mohammadnb »

I have a sample of data passive array, that has been taken as a circular array of microtremors, and I want to get the Love wave Dispersion curve and invert it.
can you guide me on how to do this?
Thanks.

To get Love dispersion curve from ambient vibrations, you must process 3-component recordings. Various alternatives are:
  • Three component SPAC (Köhler et al., Geophysical Journal International, 2007). It is implemented in Geopsy but undocumented. It will soon evolve.
  • WaveDec (Marano et al., Geophysical Journal International, 2012 and 2017). The code can be requested at http://mercalli.ethz.ch/~marra/WaveDec
  • RTBF (Wathelet et al., Geophysical Journal International, 2018). Available in latest geopsy releases. A tutorial can be found at http://www.geopsy.org/wiki/index.php/Geopsy-fk
Love and Rayleigh dispersion curves as well as the Rayleigh ellipticity can inverted in dinver. Higher modes are also considered.
