Comment on the Seismic Method Depth-Recursive Tomography on Grid (DRTG) Developed by Miroslav Novotný and Recently Published in Three Papers in Surveys in Geophysics
The comment addresses three papers published recently in Surveys in Geophysics. These papers are related, using the same seismic tomography approach developed by the same first author. They deal with modelling of seismic refraction crustal data in the Bohemian Massif and their geological interpretation. Novotný (2011) presents a P-wave velocity model based on tomography along the refraction profile CEL09 of the CELEBRATION 2000 experiment; Novotný (2012) presents a geological interpretation of this model. Novotný et al. (2009) interpret a part of the S01 seismic refraction profile of the SUDETES 2003 experiment and present both a seismic velocity model and a detailed geological model derived from it.
All results in the three mentioned papers are obtained using a seismic method, developed by the first author, called the Depth-Recursive Tomography on Grid (DRTG). This method is based on a regular network of refraction grid rays generated for iteratively updated models. Though data and...
