PUBLIC LECTURE – Good vibrations: Using ambient seismic signals to explore deep continents and distant oceans

November 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Anya Reading

Professor Anya Reading, School of Natural Sciences, University of Tasmania. Seismic ‘noise’, the background ambient signals recorded by seismic stations around the planet, can be utlised to infer the structure of the deep continents, the 3D architecture of the tectonic plates. Ocean storms, at incredible distances, also transmit signals to seismic stations on land. Archive seismic records can hence be used to investigate storms, and possible changes in storm patterns, over recent decades. This presentation will survey the variety of…
