American Museum of Natural History Presents: Seismic Robots: Through the Oceans to the Mantle
November 13 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
In the last few decades, seismologists have mapped the Earth’s interior in ever-increasing detail. Placing seismic stations on the bottom of the oceans is just one way to detect earthquake wave motion, but researchers are developing exciting new alternatives. Geophysicist Frederik J. Simons discusses the challenging places his scientific journeys have taken him and how autonomous floating robots are being used to record seismic activity deep below the surface.
The Annual IRIS/SSA Lecture Series is presented in collaboration with the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology and the Seismological Society of America
