Title: Muons and seismic: a dynamic duo for the shallow subsurface?

This paper explores, at a preliminary level, the possibility of merging seismic data, both active and passive, with density constraints inferred from muon measurements. We focus on a theoretical analysis but note that muon experiments are ongoing to test model predictions with experimental data.
