Attend Seismic Tomography 2020


Seismic Tomography: What Comes Next?

As the field of seismic tomography enters its middle age, it’s time to take stock of the field’s accomplishments, challenges and prospects. This new SSA meeting aims to be a forum for tomography experts and adjacent researchers to present recent findings and evaluate techniques and models. We encourage attendees to come with ambitious and even “wild ideas” for advancing tomography’s reach in the geosciences.

We encourage submissions in classic tomography research, full waveform tomography, time-dependent tomography, near-surface imaging and joint inversion research, along with discussion of uncertainty analysis, imaging instrumentation, quantitative interpretation of images and new imaging tools such as ambient noise interferometry.
