Seismology for Today’s Geoscientists

In the past decade many new (geo)applications have been developed that utilize the seismic and acoustic wavefields propagating within the Earth and the atmosphere. These new applications are now viable because of advances in theory, instrumentation, data processing methods and computing power. A number of studies go well beyond what is considered traditional seismology, and the presentation will cover a few of these new topics related to near-surface processes and material characterization. Furthermore, a few areas where significant advances are being made seismologists will be highlighted, e.g., debris-flow and glacier monitoring.
