Linear arrays are usually deployed for passive surface-wave investigations because of their high efficiency and convenience. However, the limited azimuthal coverage lacks the ability to attenuate velocity overestimation caused by directional noise sources. Liu et al. (2020) propose to add two more offline receivers to a conventional linear array for compensating the azimuthal coverage and then the beamforming technique is used for capturing the source distribution and estimating accurate dispersion measurements. Results from field data demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method to measure unbiased dispersion image.
