Mars Insight: Marsquakes - How do we detect them, and how do we use them to understand Mars?

Conversation Date: 
Tuesday, December 19, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PT (3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET)

This talk will discuss our expectations of the observations of Marsquakes by the InSight mission, and how the challenges faced in the mission differ from, but also build on what we’ve learned from seismology on Earth.

Optionally, listen to our Mars Insight Overview telecon here, and our telecon about landing sites here.


Dr. Mark Panning

Dr. Mark Panning is a research scientist at JPL, recently arriving here in 2017 after many years as a faculty member at the University of Florida.  He began his career in terrestrial seismology, but after first encountering planetary problems simulating potential seismic data from Europa, the moon of Jupiter, more than 10 years ago, and then joining the science team for InSight in 2009, he has gradually become a full time planetary scientist.
