1)   Interpretation of seismograms

2)   Locating earthquakes

3)   Computer ray tracing

4)   Fault plane solutions

5)   Dispersion

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.
