Summer School on Seismic Imaging

  • Start Date: 08/10/2009
  • End Date: 08/14/2009

University of Washington


In exploration or reflection seismology, seismic imaging creates images
of the Earth's upper crust using seismic waves generated by artificial
sources and recorded into extensive arrays of sensors (geophones or
hydrophones). The technology is based on a complex, and rapidly
evolving, mathematical theory that employs advanced solutions to a wave
equation as tools to solve the general seismic inverse problem. The
economic need for better images fuels research into improved imaging


The workshop will consist of several minicourses addressing a broad
range of theoretical and practical issues arising in seismic imaging
including the use of curvelets and other frames in seismic imaging,
compressed sensing applied to seismic imaging, velocity estimation and
inverse wave imaging. Each minicourse will consist of 3 one-hour
lectures. There will be computer labs associated with the lectures.
