The Seismology and Mathematical Geophysics research group within the Earth Physics area has broad research interests ranging from
elucidating lithospheric structures, to studying the inner
core, to developing new methods for imaging earth's interior. Please have a look around and contact any one of the researchers here.
The Earth Physics - Seismology & Mathematical Geophysics group covers a range of activities designed to exploit the favourable geographic location of Australia relative to the worlds earthquake belts. This is reflected in extensive studies using deployments of portable instrumentation to study the structure of the Australian continent and the mantle beneath. In addition, research in different topics of theoretical seismology are a strength of the group.
The broad-band station CAN at Mt Stromlo is operated in association with the French GEOSCOPE network and a broad-band borehole instrument (WRAB) is supported at the Warramunga Array for the IRIS-IDA network as a contribution to global seismology.
The group has been able to attract significant external funding from a variety of sources for work relating to Australian structure, seismic wave propagation, inversion for source location and mechanism and the nature of regional phases.
