Effect of Station and Source Factors on the Accuracy of Seismic Parameter Determination

  • V. F. Pisarenko
  • T. G. Rautian


In the solution of many experimental seismological problems, the ultimate aim is to obtain an average value of some parameter y or an averaged function y(x) of some independent variable x. The desired value y or function y(x) is isolated in a random scatter of individual measurements. Therefore only results that have been averaged for a sufficiently large volume of material are reliable and accurate.
