November 21st, 2013

Erin Wirth of Yale University will be on campus Friday to give a lecture as part of the Department of Earth and Environment’s Solid Earth Seminar Series.

Wirth’s lecture, titled “Interrogating Seismic Anisotropy in Subduction Zones and Continental Interiors,” will take place at 11:00 am in CAS 141C.

Wirth is a Ph.D. candidate at Yale in the Department of Geology &  Geophysics. Wirth’s research interests include the study of seismic anisotropy and the use of “seismological techniques (such as shear wave splitting and receiver function analysis) to interrogate seismic anisotropy in the subduction zone mantle wedge and within continental interiors” (“About Erin Wirth“).
