My 1st University of Maryland Geology Department paper is out. Curious about how we generate phase velocity maps ‘E Pluribus Unum’ using EarthScope noise vibrations and UMD supercomputers? Then check out the details on Tectonics.
Highlights (for dummies):
1. E Pluribus Unum: Auto-adaptive phase velocity maps using machine learning techniques i.e. Bayes’ theorem
2. Separating the wheat from the chaff: Quantified various sources of uncertainties in the underlying seismic measurements
3. How good is the old? Don’t be quick to throw out old elastic wave models everywhere: especially on old stable Cratons.
