10th Munich Earth Skience School

16-21 February, 2020


This winter school will focus on methodologies relevant to inverse problems in Earth Sciences. As usual we will combine theory with practicals using the Python language and Jupyter notebooks. As always we start with a day of Python/ObsPy introduction with a focus on new features. Detailed programme will be published in autumn 2019.


The workshop will be held in memory of Albert Tarantola (1949-2009)

Lecturers/Tutors: Andrew Curtis (Edinburgh), Klaus Mosegaard (Copenhagen), Andreas Fichtner (Zürich), Yann Capdeville (Nantes), Jeroen Tromp (tbc, Princeton), Heiner Igel (Munich)

Organization: Heiner Igel (LMU Munich)

Practical information: Lectures, practicals will be given from 8-11 and after 3pm (open end). Between 11am and 3pm (depending on conditions) winter sports facilities can be used ( More info on the winter sport programme can be found here.

Philosophy: This workshop combines the thrill of learning, studying, and practicing seismology and new methodologies, with the thrill of wintersports and being out in nature. Beware that the hotel is isolated in the mountains, no shopping, little to no public transport to anywhere. WLAN is available free of charge at the hotel. Note that we provide half pension only, in the ski area (within walking distance) there are restaurants where lunch is available.

Registration: will open December 1, 2019.
