Temporary Seismic Stations Boost Tomography Capability to look into the Earth. Case Studies in the Northwestern Alps, Italy

STEFANO SOLARINO ISTITUTO NAZIONALE DI GEOFISICA E VULCANOLOGIA, INGV, ITALY, STEFANO.SOLARINO@INGV.IT Abstract Seismic tomography serves as a potent means to investigate the Earth's internal structure. This method closely resembles the one used in medicine and relies on variations (in path, amplitude or velocity) that seismic rays experience when passing through an anomalous body, such as a rock with higher density or an area subjected to high temperature. In the case of seismic tomography, earthquakes act as emitters while seismic stations function as receivers. Unlike in medicine, where a specialized machine ensures a uniform distribution of emitters and receivers, seismic rays [...]
