Abstract

Seismic methods are the primary characterization tools for several engineering and near-surface problems. Noninvasive and invasive methods based on the propagation of either body or surface waves are used widely. Often, more than one method is applied at the same site. In spite of possible synergies that exist between different methods, the data are often processed and interpreted independently. The integration of different data sets could provide more reliable final models and comprehensive site characterization. Acquisition can be optimized to obtain a multipurpose data set. Additional improvements might be obtained by a constrained or joint inversion of different seismic data. These can be demonstrated with real-world examples.
