New Results at Mayon, Philippines, from a Joint Inversion of Gravity and Deformation Measurements
In this paper, we detail the combination of the genetic algorithm (GA) inversion technique with the elastic-gravitational model originally developed by Rundle and subsequently refined by Fernández and others. A sensitivity analysis is performed for the joint inversion of deformation and gravity to each of the model parameters, illustrating the importance of proper identification of both the strengths and limitations of any source model inversion, and this technique in particular. There is a practical comparison of the theoretical results with the inversion of geodetic data observed at the Mayon volcano in the Philippines, where there are gravity changes without significant deformation, after the 1993 eruption.
