Short summary
Seismic source inversion is the method of inferring the spatial orientation of an earthquake source from seismic records. The results come with large uncertainties, which we try to estimate in a Bayesian approach. We propose an empirical relationship for the likelihood function based on a large dataset of deterministic solutions. This allows using the cross-correlation coefficient as a misfit criterion, which is better suited for waveform comparison than the popular root mean square or L2 norm.
