Working Group on Seismic Imaging of the Lithosphere (WGSIL) Infromation



In 2003 the Commission on Controlled Source Seismology CCSS) became a division of IASPEI, the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior and re-organized into IASPEI's Working/Task Group on Seismic Imaging of the Lithosphere (WGSIL) operating under its Commission on Tectonophysics and Crustal Structure.

Their latest report is available at http://www.iaspei.org/commissions/CTCS/mooney.pdf

CCSS and now WGSIL workshops date back over 35 years. The last, the 2003 Virginia workshop was the 12th in the series.
