AMCS Seminar | Inverse Problems in Exploration and Global Seismology

Start Date: November 20, 2016
End Date: November 20, 2016

By Professor Maarten De Hoop, Rice University, Houston,USA
Spectacular advances in acquisition by dense arrays driven by the need for new information, converging interests in academic and private sector applications, and advances in sensor technology are producing fast growing volumes of (high quality) waveform data. This wealth of data gives exciting new opportunities for learning. Fully exploiting these data leads to fundamental questions for inverse problems. I will give an overview of what we know about spectral and geometric inverse problems and hyperbolic and time-harmonic inverse boundary value problems - using descriptions in terms of normal modes, rays and waveforms - based on multiscale systems, pertaining to seismology.
