Structural seismology is the study of Earth's interior using seismic waves from earthquake sources. Using records from around the world, seismologists constrain the structure of Earth's crust, mantle and core. The tools of structural seismology are also used in the search for natural resources, such as oil and gas. The structural seismology group at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities began in the summer of 2003 and has active projects investigating scattering in the crust and uppermost mantle, seismic structure of Canadian lithosphere, detailed imaging of the lowermost mantle and core-mantle boundary and a search for chemical discontinuities in the mid-mantle. There are many opportunities for new graduate students! Canoe!
