Seismic tomography is a powerful tool for imaging the Earth’s interior with the resulting models allowing us to infer its composition, dynamics and evolution. Over the last decades, our images have sharpened, thanks to the growth of global and dense regional networks (on land and in the oceans), the extraction of new observables, advances in modelling techniques and increased computational power. We are now not only resolving unprecedented details on local and regional scales, but also moving towards whole-Earth tomography, including the inner core.

We welcome contributions on all aspects related to seismic tomography, from crust to core. Last year’s training school of the COST-action "TIDES" (TIme-DEpendent Seismology) highlighted exciting new developments in the field, including studies of new observables, developments in forward modelling and inversion techniques, innovative approaches to uncertainty quantification, as well as interdisciplinary efforts aimed at obtaining new insights into Earth's dynamics and evolution. We encourage contributions in all of these directions. While we welcome all studies aimed at constraining Earth structure, we particularly invite contributions that utilise passive sources.
