17-22 june Cracow city hosted geophysicists and geologists from the whole world during SESIMIX2018

Over 100 scientists from 23 countries, 110 oral and poster presentations and 5 invited lectures that's the summary of the International Symposium on Deep Seismic Profiles of the Continents and their Margins

Seismix is an international symposium on seismic imaging that is held every two years. The first meeting was held at Cornell in 1984, and since that time, it has visited Canada, Australia, Finland, China, Spain and many other places around the world. The original motivation for Seismix came from a group of seismologists interested in pursuing national programs of multichannel seismic reflection profiling of continents and their margins. Notable examples include BIRPS in the UK, DEKORP in Germany, BELCORP in Belgium, Lithoprobe in Canada and FIRE in Finland. In the last decade, Seismix has diversified from crustal reflection profiling to include most kinds of seismic imaging methods that can be applied to the crust and underlying mantle lithosphere. Thus, methods include those that use active sources or passive sources, and applications range from exploration through to the solid Earth. The emphasis is on new methods and their applications, and on advancing our understanding of crustal/lithospheric dynamics, structure and processes. 

The motto of SESIMIX 2018 Seismology between the Poles reflected not only the location of the meeting, but also global reach of our research. The busy schedule of the conference included oral and poster presentations covering different thematic fields:

  • THE CONTINENTAL LITHOSPHERE;
  • PASSIVE CONTINENTAL MARGINS;
  • ACTIVE CONTINENTAL MARGINS;
  • INNOVATIVE SESIMIC ACQUISITION AND PROCESSING TECHNIQUES;
  • SEISMIC IMAGING FOR EARTH HAZARDS, RESOURCES AND NEAR-SURFACE;
  • ADVANCED SEISMIC IMAGING AND INVERSION METHODS INCLUDING FWI AND INTERFEROMETRY;
  • MID-OCEAN RIDGES AND OCEAN LITHOSPHERE;
  • CONTINENTAL RIFTS AND SEDIMENTARY BASINS+INTRA-CONTINENTAL DEFORMATION, COLLISION AND ACCREATION.

The participants also took advantage of the Symposium location during the sightseeing tour in the Old Town of Krakow.
