IMPROVE Summer School on Geophysical data inversion and numerical forward modelling

Dear colleagues,

on behalf of Laura Reilly, the community outreach officer for the Geophysics section at Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS), we would like to share with you some information on the  IMPROVE Summer School on Geophysical data inversion and numerical forward modelling in Ireland from the 14th-20th May 2023.
The school will focus on geophysical data inversion and numerical forward modelling which are key elements in the study of volcanoes.
Physics based inversion allows the estimation of a population of models by extracting information from observed data, while forward modelling tools can yield a prediction of the expected data, given a model.
Combined use of these approaches permits estimates of volcano source parameters and volcano structure. In the Ireland School, we will consider theoretical and practical aspects of both data inversion and forward modelling, drawing on examples from seismic & acoustic (infrasound) source estimations, volcano deformation and volcano imagery using seismology and magnetotellurics. We will also briefly consider the relative merits of physics based versus data driven inversion (e.g. Deep Learning – DL), and briefly explore new hybrid inversion approaches where physical laws are incorporated into DL data driven schemes.
Finally, the School will also cover topics such as project management, research leadership, and good communication. Please see the details HERE.
The preliminary list of lecturers includes:  Silvio De Angelis, Duygu Kiyan, Ivan Lokmer, Chris Bean, Paddy Smith, Ka Lok Li, and Emma Chambers.
To register for the summer school please visit the following link by April 3rd, 2023
The school is open to a maximum of 15 Ph.D. students, besides IMPROVE fellows. Participants will be selected on the basis of demonstrated relevance of the school for their research and career development.
