Network-wide training will be offered in the form of short courses, workshops and a joint field deployment. More information to follow.

Year 1:


kick off event

Short Course 1 - Instruments & Wave propagation

Establish same core background for all ESRs.

Workshop 1 - New realms of seismic instrumentation

How can we accurately measure complete ground motion? New sensor concepts and first observations.

Year 2:

Short Course 2 - Physics & dynamic processes

Optimizing experiment design, and improving seismic inverse problems.

Workshop 2 - NEW physical models for Earth’s interior

Theoretical background to nonclassical nonlinear elasticity. Training on monitoring and understanding of the time-dependent behaviour of the Earth’s crustal materials.

Attendance and presentation at International Conference

Joint field deployment at CNRS-LSBB

Field experiment using different sensor types installed at same location (e.g. inside and on surface above laboratory facilities at LSBB, allowing for a 3D deployment). Goal: cross-validation of methodology and observations with different instrumentation.

Year 3:

Short Course 3 - “SPIN-off”

Propel the network into the future. ESRs will team up with supervisors and invited key scientists to develop ideas for their own future postdoctoral research.

Workshop 3 - Interrogating the restless Earth

How can we sharpen our images of changing subsurface properties? How do novel processing techniques help predict dynamic stresses inside the wavefield and their impact on the rock mass (e.g., induced events, poroelastic effects, damage and healing)?

Year 4:

Short Course 4 - Outreach - The industry week

“Life outside the ivory tower” - interaction with non-academics who could be future employers.

Workshop 4 - New hazard monitoring strategies in Earth Sciences and beyond

What is the impact of the SPIN developments on specific applications in the fields of natural hazards at national observatories, exploration seismics, engineering and beyond? How can SPIN research influence natural hazard policy? Goal: develop a new set of best practices for hazard monitoring strategies, based on SPIN research results.
