This talk highlights the ways in which seismology helps us find oil and gas and understand Earth and Mars by mapping Earth’s deep interior and taking Mars' vital signs. As part of the ongoing 'InSight Mission' on Mars, seismology is used to detect quakes and measure the planet’s ground motions. 

Detailed 3D maps of the subsurface can be constructed using a combination of theory, supercomputers and records of ground motion generated by earthquakes or man-made sources. Such images are used to locate hydrocarbons and understand the dynamics of planetary and solar interiors.

The event speaker will be Jeroen Tromp, Blair Professor of Geology and Geosciences and Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princetone University. He is also the Director of Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering at Princeton.
