12.510 Introduction to Seismology
A basic study in seismology and the utilization of seismic waves for the study of Earth's interior. Introduces techniques necessary for understanding of elastic wave propagation in stratified media and for calculation of synthetic seismograms (WKBJ and mode summation). Ray theory; interpretation of travel times. (e.g., tomography); surface wave dispersion in layered media; Earth's free oscillations; and seismicity, (earthquake locations, magnitude, moment, and source properties).
12.510 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by G. Prieto.
Lecture occurs 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 54-819.
