ReQUESTing models for seismic sources, earth structure and Polar Seismology
Convener: Andrew Valentine  | Co-Convener: Éléonore Stutzmann 
 / Fri, 12 Apr, 13:30–17:00  / Room B5
 / Attendance Fri, 12 Apr, 08:30–12:00  / Blue Posters

The QUEST project, an EU-funded Initial Training Network, focusses on seismic inverse problems, and their solution. Through modelling and inversion of seismic waveforms and seismic noise, we aim to achieve a better understanding of Earth's structure, the characteristics of earthquake sources and time dependent seismology with a special interest in Arctic and Antarctic areas.

This open session welcomes all contributions on new developments and applications related to: data inversions using 3D simulation of seismic wave propagation on all scales; analysis of ambient noise. The session will cover both seismic source imaging and the development of earth structure models, including the specific case of ice-covered polar regions.

The session will feature solicited contributions from:
Jeannot Trampert (Universiteit Utrecht)
Dylan Mikesell, Jeroen Ritsema & Guust Nolet (GeoAzur/University of Michigan)
Mike Kendall (University of Bristol)
Veronique Farra (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris)
