Seismic travel times, mass fractions of tracer); F is a forward model operator; C−1 d is the inverse of the data covariance matrix. It is commonly assumed that the data are uncorrelated, rendering the C−1 d a diagonal matrix that contains the inverses of the estimated variances of the observation errors; thus, more reliable data carry larger weight when evaluating the data fit. Our data covariance matrix can either be estimated or assumed to take certain values if the method does not allow an error estimate.
