Imaging the Earth's Interior beneath Alaska
1:30-2:00 pm Add
145 McCone Hall
How do seismologists use earthquakes to study the interior of the earth? What can we learn from earthquake waves about the geodynamics of Alaska, a region of spectacular earthquakes and volcanoes? A new set of seismometers deployed in the Alaskan region gives us the best images yet of the Alaskan subduction zones.
