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 not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Van Der Hilt.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
