WGLTSS - 2017 AGU SIG

Agenda for WGLTSS Special Interest Group Meeting at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting

SUMMARY

  1. Review of potential scientific targets and observations, e.g., recording seismic phases, great earthquakes, etc.
  2. How long does a site need to be continously occupied to gather enough relatively short-period mantle and core phase data from large earthquakes? Discussion of scientific observations that may require deployments longer than 18 months.
    • What can we observe over 5 years that we cannot observe over 18 months?
    • What can we observe over 10 years that we cannot observe over 5 years?
  3. Pros and cons of short-term "arrays of stations" versus deploying one high-quality station for a longer period of time.
  4. New advancements in hardware/deployment technologies.
  5. What array configurations are needed to see the details of large-scale deep earth structures that have been partially resolved with global tomography?
