Seismic imaging of the mantle

Number of credits : 3
Trainer : Thomas Bodin (
Type of training: 30h TDs

Content :

We will discuss theoretical and practical basics for seismic imaging of the Earth's mantle, as well as methods for seismological data analysis. Students individually carry out a (small) research project, where recent methods are applied to interpret seismic observations. Results and limits are discussed and compared to the recent literature. The theoretical aspects are partly covered during the Ecole de Physique des Houches.
