Analysis of seismic profile shots at permanent seismic stations to investigate the crustal structure in and around the Barents Sea

A large number of commercial and scientific seismic reflection and refraction profiles have been shot in and around the Barents Sea during the last decades.

Many of the airgun-shots along these profiles were also observed with permanent seismic stations and arrays in the region.

A systematic analysis of such observations with data stacking techniques (source and receiver beams, slant-stack) and forward modelling will result in new knowledge about the velocity structure of the lower crust, Moho and upper mantle in the whole region.

Learning outcome: experience in digital signal processing, seismogram interpretation and theoretical seismology, deepened knowledge about the 3D structure of the Barents Sea.
