Passive Seismic is a broad term, incorporating various techniques and methodologies, which all exploit some part of the seismic signal that naturally exists or occurs in the Earth’s subsurface. This signal may differ significantly in the form and/or the provenance (e.g. earthquakes, ambient seismic noise, etc.), as well as the frequency content and, subsequently, the part of the subspace on which it may carry useful information.
