DIAS to host IMPROVE Summer School in Carlingford Co. Louth 14th-20th May.

Registration is open for prospective PhD and early stage post docs for IMPROVE Summer School.

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 permit 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.

Preliminary list of lecturers include: 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 https://www.improve-etn.eu/index.php/improve-summer-school-ireland/ 

The school is open to a maximum of 15 PhD students, besides IMPROVE fellows. Participants will be selected on the basis of demonstrated relevance of the school for their research and career development.
