The estimation of earthquake occurrence rates and seismic hazard analyses, along with treaty verification requirements to identify and characterize seismic sources in particular regions, requires removing mine blasts from seismic catalogs (Mackey et al. 2003). While efforts progress to formulate generalized discriminants based solely on seismic data, these efforts are often hampered by poor data quality and a significant need for custom processing due to the widely ranging propagation characteristics of each region (Hartse et al. 1997; Taylor and Hartse 1998; Stump et al. 2002). Many regions of interest to researchers and to the...
