Comprehensive questions: Grand challenges in Earth Sciences, Review of
basic seismology
1. What are some of the key issues involved with the problems of earthquakeinduced strong ground motions, what needs to be done to better forecast strong
ground motions?
2. What are the most damaging wave types after large earthquakes? Do you know
what was so special about the earthquake that destroyed Mexico City in 1985?
3. What information from seismograms is used usually to obtain tomographic images
of the subsurface? What could be done to make the images of the Earth’s interior
sharper?
4. What role can the properties of the slip along a large fault during an earthquake
have on ground motion and the generation of tsunamis?
5. Why is seismic noise suddenly becoming interesting? What can one do with such
“useless” information?
