Introductory seismology with animations
Seismic wavefield perturbed by plumes and slabs
This video shows the seismic wavefield of an earthquake in a mantle that contains a subducting slab on the left and an upwelling megaswell-structure on the right. The situation is comparable to Southern America on the left and Africa on the right with the earthquake happening in the Central Atlantic ocean at the mid-ocean ridge.
Note that the velocity anomalies are exaggerated to make the effect more prominent.
Seismic wavefield in the Jovian moon Europa
AxiSEM is able to model seismic wave propagation in terrestrial planets in general. One of the most fascinating objects in the solar system is Europa, with its abysmal ocean below a few kilometers of ice. The structure results in a wavefield that is completely different from what we see on Earth. Most of the wave energy is either contained inside the ice (especially SH-waves) or is reverberating inside the ocean.
Seismic wavefield in the Earth
This video shows the seismic wavefield in the Earth's mantle assuming the velocity depends only on depth.
Seismic wavefield perturbed by a megaswell-structure
This video shows a wavefield in a mantle that contains a megaswell.
