Tomography is like a photograph that was taken by a camera with blurred and defective lenses that deform the shapes and colours of objects. Reporting quantitative parameters derived from tomographic inversion is not always adequate because tomographic results are often strongly biased. To quantify the results of tomographic inversion, we propose a forward modelling and tomographic inversion (FM&TI) approach that aims to find a more realistic solution than conventional tomographic inversion. The FM&TI scheme is based on the assumption that if two tomograms derived from the inversion of observed and synthetic data are identical, the synthetic structure may appear to be closer to the real unknown structure in the ground than the inversion result. However, the manual design of the synthetic velocity distribution is usually time-consuming and ambiguous. In this study, we propose an approach that automatically searches for a probabilistic model.
