Unveiling the fine structure of the Australian continent using ocean waves

Project: Research

Description

The overarching goal of this project is to illuminate the seismic structure and constrain the thermal and chemical status of the entire continental lithosphere-asthenosphere system using seismic noise generated by ocean waves. Using an innovative data processing of seismic ambient noise, we will retrieve interstation surface waves at periods of 5-250 sec, which enable us to image the Earth’s structure from the surface down to asthenospheric depths with unprecedented data coverage and resolution.
