S031:
Advances in Full Waveform Modeling, Inversion, and Imaging





Session ID#: 25710

Session Description:
Full-waveform modeling has enabled seismologists to accurately account for complex wave propagation in three-dimensional (3D) heterogeneous, anisotropic, and (an)elastic Earth. This has led to great progresses in imaging of the Earth structure and studies of seismic sources. This session provides a forum for developments in full-waveform-based methods and applications, including but not limited to: (1) development and validation of forward modeling techniques and inversion algorithms, (2) automatic full-waveform data processing algorithms, (3) multi-scale imaging of velocity, anisotropy, density, and attenuation structures using earthquake signals, ambient noise, and active-source data, (4) estimation of earthquake source locations, moment tensors, rupture processes, and fault structures, (5) model assessment and validation, (6) full-waveform migration, and (7) wave-prediction and observation of site amplification, surface ground-motion, and seismic hazard. Topics combining full-waveform methods with other geophysical constraints and presentations highlighting new geological/tectonic insights from full-waveform approaches are strongly encouraged.
