Passive seismics is the set of applications that endeavours the exploration of the
Earth’s mechanical properties using naturally occurring sources in the subsurface.
Conventional imaging of the subsurface is achieved with the aid of reflection
surveys of body waves from the surface. Passive seismics offers the possibility
to retrieve these reflection surveys using recordings of ambient noise and seismic
tremors, without the use of active sources. This thesis explores the use of novel
applications in passive seismics with the purpose to obtain an improved subsurface
image, compared to those obtained using conventional passive seismic imaging.
