Description:
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Preparing students to extend their knowledge and skills in selected sub-disciplines of seismology. For instance, training students, using theory and practical skills, for determination and interpretation of fault-plane solutions.

COURSE CONTENT:

E.g.: Theoretical fundamentals - displacement caused by the force in infinite medium, dipoles, pairs of forces. Models of the seismic source. Types of faults. Stereographic projections. Practical determination of fault-plane solution.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

After the course Selected chapters of seismology students are able to, e.g.:
1.Define and differentiate between force models used to describe ground motion in an infinite medium.
2.Defend the choice of the double-couple to describe earthquake faulting.
3.Derive and explain expressions describing radiation of the double-couple source in various coordinate systems.
4.Define and describe fault types.
5.Define and describe Wulffs and Schmidts stereographic projections.
6.Describe faults as presented by their stereographic projection, as well as the tectonic stress field causing the faulting

LEARNING MODE:
Studying textbook and other literature (including lecture notes), attending lectures.

TEACHING METHODS:
Lectures, discussion.
METHODS OF MONITORING AND VERIFICATION:
Regular attendance at lectures, solved problems. Oral exam.
