JEF 311E - Seismology

Course Objectives

1. To provide the students with basic understanding of theory of seismology.
2. To give insight into the Earth’s interior structure inferred form seismology.
3. To train the students on how earthquake parameters are calculated.
4. To develop skills for acquisition, processing and interpretation of seismological data

Course Description

This intoductory course on seismology provides the students with the fundamental theory of seismic waves and focuses on how seismological observations are used for the purpose of understanding the internal structure of the Earth. Topics covered are: theory of elasticity, wave equations, body and surface waves, seismology and structure of the earth, seismic waves in spherical earth, determination of earthquake properties, faults and faulting mechanism, seismicity, seismotectonics, engineering seismology and other seismic phenomena.
