Waves and Wave-Based Imaging in Virtual and experimental Environments

WP3 - Applications across the disciplines [Months: 1-48]

Description of work

WP3 will apply the new theory explored in WP1 and WP2 to topics of societal relevance. Understanding how acoustic and elastic waves interact with complex media is very important to researchers in seismology, exploration geophysics, atmospheric physics, medical acoustics as well as other fields. Today, in the era of high performance computing, all these disciplines share at least one common goal: that of making use of the entire wealth of information encoded in the observed wave field, to image as accurately as possible the structure of the medium of propagation, monitor its changes, and detect (and determine the properties of) the sources of recorded waves. WP3 will to bring together scientists who are confronted with this problem in very different contexts, to capitalize on theoretical and laboratory-based advances made in WP1 and WP2, and to promote new interdisciplinary exchange of ideas by addressing scientific questions from a variety of independent angles.
