Besides the well‐known forensics in law enforcement, forensic techniques are used in many scientific fields, including archaeology, biology, geology, and seismology. In seismology, the discrimination between earthquakes and chemical and nuclear explosions is by far the most important and extensively studied area (e.g., Thirlaway, 1973; Stump et al., 1999, 2002; Douglas, 2007; Bowers and Selby, 2009).
