Good vibrations: Of earthquakes, elephants, and extraterrestrial life
Wednesday 23 January - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Seismology has come a long way from constraining seismicity and Earth's interior. Owing to recent developments in instrumentation on land, sea, and above, big datasets, numerical techniques, supercomputing and machine learning, we now quantify and understand information from those complex vibrations that continuously excite our planet and its surface at scales from nanometer-scale cracks to global oscillations, and thereby illuminate their underlying processes.
