The seismology group
Investigating seismic structures in the Earth help to understand mantle processes and provide information on mineralogy. Using seismic arrays we are trying to derive high-resolution fine-scale images on mantle structures. We are particularly interested in seismic structures in the Earth's mantle: The D" regions (the lowest 200-300 km of the mantle) the mantle transition zone, and the mid-lower mantle. We also investigate core structures and generate high-resolution images of volcanic regions.
