Dear Colleagues,

The European Seismological Commission General Assembly will take place in Valletta (Malta) from 2 to 7 September 2018.

We would like to draw your attention and invite you to submit an abstract to the session

S08 Seismic Tomography: methodological advances and applications at different scales

Seismic tomography is one of the most effective tools for Earth structure investigation. Several techniques and algorithms have been developed in the last few years with the aim to better characterize the Earth’s interior through higher-resolution imaging, from global to local scale. This session will focus on advances in seismic tomography general theory, applications, and outstanding, debated methodological problems, including proper starting model definition, robustness tests, result representation, and the effects of uncertainty in earthquake locations. Contributions on methodology and applications of tomographic inversion at different scales and with different types of data (local earthquake, teleseisms, ambient noise, surface waves, etc.) are welcome. The session will also provide the stage to present and discuss recent results on the crustal and mantle structure in the Euro-Mediterranean region, as well as other areas worldwide
