This workshop is for post-docs or students studying seismology.
The USArray Transportable and Flexible Array experiments have provided extraordinary opportunities for advanced imaging of the entire earth. Since forward modeling is an essential part of formal seismic inversion methods, the workshop will focus on forward and inverse modeling methods. The workshop will review methods of seismic forward modeling, tomographic and scattered wave imaging, waveform tomography, and adjoint and inversion methods. Several forward modeling methods for 1-D and 3-D Earth structures are available to the community through the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG).
We intend to have technical presentations on seismic methodology followed by tutorials. The tutorials will be designed to illustrate use of the CIG codes, other seismic imaging codes, and to address the strengths and limitations of the different seismic image formation methods.
We encourage attendance by senior graduate students and post-docs. U.C. Berkeley accommodations are available for all participants. Attendance will be limited to 35 students and post-docs. We can accommodate ~15 senior scientists in addition to the lecturers. Transportation, meals, and lodging will be covered.
This is the fourth USArray Imaging Science workshop and coincidentally the fourth CIG Seismology workshop.
