In Utrecht we study the Earth's_interior at all scales.We extract information from earthquakes recorded at global and regional seismic networks to produce three-dimensional models of the Earth'sinterior, mostly using supercomputing. Much of our work is methodological, but we also try to understand the inferred structure in terms of dynamics.

A Pressure wave, a Shear wave and surface waves are measured in this seismogram.
