Hello fellow students!

We are writing to invite you to participate in the upcoming fifth annual Seismology Student Workshop to be held March 13th-14th at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York.  This workshop is completely student-run and organized with the aim of bringing together graduate students who conduct research in seismology and earthquake-related fields. We intend to build on the success of our previous workshops in providing a friendly environment that fosters in-depth scientific discussion.

Topics related to the scope of this workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Seismic imaging of tectonic processes
  • Tomographic/inverse techniques
  • Earthquake source processes
  • Rock mechanics
  • Seismic anisotropy
  • Seismicity and tremor

The format will be a series of 25-minute talks and poster sessions that take place over the course of the two days. Registration will be $75. This fee will cover three nights of hotel lodging for the nights of Sunday March 12th, Monday the 13th, and Tuesday the 14th, as well as all meals and refreshments during the workshop. Registration is limited to 55 participants, with preference given to those who submit abstracts.

The facebook page for the workshop can be found here:
