Better Tomorrow Speaker Series: New Frontiers of Planetary Seismology

February 6, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, POST 723

UH Manoa Better Tomorrow Speaker Series:

New Frontiers of Planetary Seismology

With Philippe Lognonné, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris & Université Paris Diderot-Sorbonne Paris Cité

Professor Lognonné will review advances in planetary seismology, from the first instruments placed on the Moon some 45 years ago to plans for NASA’s next mission to Mars.

The scientific perspectives of the InSight mission are discussed in light of the technical challenges associated with the robotic installation of seismic instruments in the hostile and windy environment of Mars.

Planetary seismology, both surface and atmospheric, promises to deepen our understanding of the entire solar system, ranging from new estimates of lunar crustal thickness to the discovery of underground oceans like those on Jupiter’s moon Europa.
