651-4096-02L  Inverse Theory for Geophysics II: Applications

SemesterSpring Semester 2016
LecturersH. Maurer, C. Böhm, A. Fichtner, E. Manukyan
Periodicityyearly recurring course
Language of instructionEnglish
CommentPrerequisites: The successful completion of 651-4096-00L Inverse Theory for Geophysics I: Basics is mandatory.


AbstractThis course offers the possibility to practice geophysical inversion techniques. For that purpose, small projects from various application areas will be presented, and the students will have the opportunity to analyze synthetic or observed data with commercial software, or they can establish their own algorithms using Matlab template scripts.
ObjectiveAfter this course the students should be prepared to analyze (geo)physical data. This includes experimental design considerations, choice of appropriate inversion tools, inclusion of a priori constraints, handling of data errors and quantitative estimation of the inversion results.
Content- Earthquake location
- Geoelectrical tomography
- Experimental design
- Adjoint methods
- Seismic full waveform inversions
Lecture notesPresentation slides and some background material will be provided.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course is offered as a half-semester course during the second part of the semester
