Workshop 2: Advances in imaging
At this workshop, the fellows had their first opportunity to present their research to each other, to exchange ideas, and get feedback from staff, advisory board and industry. In addition, a selection of staff members presented cutting-edge research in a diversity of application areas, such as medical imaging, passive and active seismic imaging/inversion at a variety of scales, and seismo-acoustic monitoring of the ocean and atmosphere. In addition, a special session was reserved for presentations by Shell staff, who presented the industrial view on several aspects of seismic imaging and monitoring, and who addressed questions of the fellows in a round-table discussion.
Benefits to the WAVES fellows:
For the fellows this was an excellent opportunity to learn about the field of acoustic imaging in a broad range of applications and scales, which helped them to see their own work in a broader perspective, to exchange ideas, get feedback from WAVES staff and the Supervisory Board, adjust their research plans (as far as needed), and plan their secondments. Moreover, the session with Shell was very useful for the fellows to learn about practical questions and solutions to seismic imaging and monitoring. During the round table discussion the fellows asked questions to Shell staff and were informed about the needs of industry in relation to WAVES projects, industrial career prospects, etc.
"The second WAVES workshop in the Netherlands provided a great platform to discuss advances the PhD candidates have made as well as to get an overview of ongoing research topics in other groups. A tight schedule with presentations from both the PhDs and supervisors occupied most of the day and the discussions showed that the interest and support from fellow PhDs and members of the WAVES program lead to a very constructive work environment. Personally, I realized that sharing ideas, even if they sound weird in the beginning, can inspire people and should be supported. In general, the workshop offered excellent opportunities to build an international network with ambitious researchers in the field of geophysics, as did the first WAVES workshop in Scotland. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed which provided a good basis to get to know each other. For the next workshop, I would appreciate an excursion during one of the day that involves some activity such as hiking." Nele Boersing, ETH
