Summer School 2018 »Full Waveform Inversion: Mathematics and Geophysics«


Full waveform inversion is a leading edge imaging technique that exploits the full signal content of seismic data.

World-leading experts from academia as well as industry present the foundations of full waveform inversion for seismic exploration from both perspectives: mathematics and geophysics. Computer tutorials complement the lectures and provide an insight into the performance of different algorithms.



From September 17-21, 2018. You can find the schedule in the right pane.
