Tomography Meeting


During the past decade, the field of seismic tomography has made a tremendous leap forward. Ambient noise interferometry has emerged and matured; modern computational resources enable 3D elastic full-waveform inversion; dense receiver networks provide unprecedented volumes of data; we start to be able to see tiny changes of Earth structure over time.

This new SSA meeting is intended to serve as a platform to critically discuss what has been and what remains to be achieved. Specific topics include but are not limited to: the quantitative interpretation of tomographic images, uncertainty analysis and reproducibility, the role and accessibility of rapidly growing HPC resources and necessary improvements in data acquisition and modeling technology.
