Quarterly research themes introduce students to a variety of digital and analog seismograms and techniques for their interpretation. Students present results of short investigations in an informal seminar setting. Credit/no-credit only.
This is an informal course designed to cover various aspects of seismology in depth. The topics vary from quarter-to-quarter - from literature study to investigation of specific techniques such as seismic tomography. The course is designed primarily for students who specialize in some aspect of seismology, but others are welcome.
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
Weekly meeting for discussion, sharing results, reporting on literature, or learning special techniques of analysis.
No special preparation is required; it is expected that some students in the class will have more specialized knowledge of seismology and may be doing research in seismology.
Class assignments and grading
This will vary from quarter-to-quarter. For example, a student in the course may be assigned to report on one or two papers during the quarter.
Grades will be CR/NC, based on class participation.
