Seismic investigations using listening capabilities only, that is, no seismic energy is added by the investigator. Earthquake seismology and natural noise studies are examples. Such techniques are used for thermal exploration, studies of micro-earthquakes, amplitude spectra of ground noise, fracture detection, P- and S-wave delay studies, etc.
