TIDES Advanced Training School

Leonardo Colavitti and Matteo Scarponi will participate to an Advanced Training School “Seismic Tomography: from data analysis to inversion, results, and uncertainty estimates” organised by TIDES (TIme DEpendent Seismology) that will be held in Oxford, UK from 10 to 14 July 2017. At this link you can find the detailed programme of the School.

Our planned contributions consist of two posters:

  • Colavitti L, Hetényi G: Towards a new method to develop a 3-D shear-wave velocity model from converted waves.
  • Scarponi M, Hetényi G, IvreaArray Working Group: High-resolution imaging of the Ivrea Geophysical Body: A receiver function and gravity approach.

IvreaArray installed

In a week-long field effort, 7 researchers from Uni. Lausanne, IG Prague and INGV Genova have installed IvreaArray, a 10-station broadband seismological array in NE Italy. The station spacing is ca. 5 km along a West-East line, and operation is foreseen for 1 year.

Sarah Incel visiting

Sarah Incel from ENS Paris will be visiting us on 6-7th July. She will give a seminar on Experimental constraints on rheology during eclogite-facies metamorphic reactions, on Thursday 6th at 16:15 in Géopolis-1628. Everyone interested in rock physics, lab experiments, petrology, dehydration reactions (and more) is welcome!
