IGCP Project 559 - Seismic Images
Many images of the Earth used by this project were collected along transects, which are long, narrow corridors across the Earth's surface. These images represent two-dimensional slices extending from the surface to depths as great as 100km.
The project is also interested in the results of older, historic studies which developed the current methodology, and documented the signatures of geological features at depth.
One of the goals of this project is to create a standard set of definitions describing images of the Earth's interior.
