The effective time history of the seismic source used in field recordings is
not well known in most cases. This applies in particular to transient sources
(like explosives or hammer blows). The so-called 'source-time-function' might
even vary from shot to shot. For this reason it is not possible to use an
appropriate source-time-function in the initial simulation of synthetic data
in an approach of full-waveform inversion. However, after synthetic data have
been calculated using a generic source-time-function, a correction filter can
be constructed such that an improved source-time-function will reduce the
misfit to the recorded data.
soutifu uses the software library libstfinv
and supports direct application of the algorithms in libstfinv to time series data files.
soutifu provides access to all engines implemented in
libstfinv (wiki: libstfinv)
and supports all data file formats as implemented in
