The competition is open to any student currently enrolled in postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford and is awarded, provided there is an entry of sufficient merit, for the best poem in English verse not exceeding 40 lines in length on a yearly chosen subject.

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.
