    Separation and location of microseism sources
    Microseisms are ground vibrations caused largely by ocean gravity waves. Multiple spatially separate noise sources may be coincidentally active. A method for source separation and individual wavefield retrieval of microseisms using a single pair of seismic stations is introduced, and a method of back azimuth estimation assuming Rayleigh-wave arrivals of microseisms is described. These methods are combined to separate and locate sources of microseisms in a synthetic model and then applied to field microseismic recordings from Ireland in the Northeast Atlantic. It is shown that source separation is an important step prior to location for both accurate microseism locations and microseisms wavefield studies.

    Source separation on seismic data : application in a geophysical setting
    (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 2012-05) ; ; ;
    This article gives a brief description of the Degenerate Unmixing Estimation Technique (DUET) and applies it in a geophysical setting. Source separation has not been fully addressed by geophysicists and is a crucial first step to locating simultaneous sources, which in turn helps with understanding the dynamics of the sources and their source mechanisms. DUET is applied to synthetic seismic signals. The source separation method works successfully to separate two contemporary explosive sources, and two simultaneous oblique tensile cracks in a 3D structural model of Mt Etna. The method is also applied to field recordings on Mt Etna from 2008. The method separates Long Period events from tremor, Long Period events from Volcano Tectonic events and different sources of tremor from each other.
