Our knowledge of the deep structures of the earth is largely due to geophysical methods. Indeed, it is impossible to directly observe the composition or structures at depths of several tens, hundreds or thousands of kilometers. We therefore have to probe the earth indirectly from measurements made by instruments on the earth's surface. Among geophysical methods, seismic tomography uses measurements of seismic waves that have propagated through the earth to calculate the properties of geological environments at depth.

The year 2020 was a difficult year for ChEESE. Our members have had to deal with lockdowns, restrictions, remote working while taking care of young children, and a lot of other stresses that come with a pandemic. However, ChEESE partners have gone above and beyond in their work and have never faltered in their dedication to excellence.
