Earth Structure imaging of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Earth Structure imaging of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Internship Description

The student will investigate the Earth structure below the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Northern Tanzania) using broadband seismic data previously acquired by Prof. Mai's research group. In particular, receiver functions will be calculated and the resuling Earth model will be
compared to the results in literature obtained with the same method applied to an adjacent area.
 
Recommended Student Academic & Research Background: MSc in Geophysics or related field

Deliverables/Expectations

​The student is expected to deliver a preliminary seismic velocity model for the crust of the investigated area and to discuss his/her result during group seminars.​
