Dear Sir,                 Both are based on different approaches and Mimamsa  (purva) is based on 'Karma Siddanta', where as uttara mimamsa is based on vedanta. Although Karma siddanta does not requires vedanta, it is just based on its fruits of action. Purva mimamsa i.e Karma mimamsa (prior enquiry) based on perception, inference, comparisons, anumana & anumeya's which are nicely desciribed by Prabhakara where as Bhatta describes 'anupalabdhi' i.e Non-perception, beyond cognition. Ultimately Mimamsa arouses the desire to think & its interpretations,Purvamimamsa tells us how to reach the highest form of god with the help of dharma (ethical actions/duty). It follows the karma-kanda with ritual as ordained by veda's. It also takes the help of nyaya as pramama.
where as the uttara mimamsa is based on 'Jnanam' , highly goes with Vedanta interpretation which leads to liberation does not required to follow the karma-kanda which I understood, pls correct if any views may went wrong.

 We find that the Pūrva Mīmāmsā has two major streams: Bhāṭṭa and
Prābhākara. śeveral concepts have distinct meanings in the two streams, as
different/opposed to each other.

In Vedanta too we have the well known streams: Bhāmatī and Vivaraṇa.
Several concepts have  distinct meanings in the two streams, as
different/opposed to each other.

Is it possible to compare the two śāstra-s on the above ground?
