INTRODUCTION TO SEISMOLOGY
There will be a number of assignments due during the semester. There will be approximately 7 problem sets/labs, and 2 exams. The problem sets will, in addition to reviewing the lectures, include material on:
1) Interpretation of seismograms
2) Locating earthquakes
3) Computer ray tracing
4) Fault plane solutions
Finally, a short paper is required in which some aspect of the literature is reviewed, a computer program run, or an original problem formulated. These projects should be started early in the semester (no later than Oct. 15) with consultation from the instructor and TA.
