SEISMOLOGY AT IAG-USP

IAG: Inst. Astronomy, Geophysics & Atmospheric Sciences

USP: University of São Paulo


Seismology at iag usp

Main Research Areas

Brazilian seismicity:

Crustal and upper mantle structure

  • Natural and dam-induced

  • Seismic risk

  • - Crustal stresses

  • deep seismic refraction

  • receiver functions

  • - upper mantle tomography
