Biography

Edward Garnero is a geophysicist using seismology to study inaccessible regions of Earth's interior - from the uppermost mantle to the innermost core. His tools include seismic wave travel time and waveform modeling, and seismic array methods. The boundary between silicate mantle rock and the liquid outer core shows a region as fascinating in its structural and dynamic diversity as Earth's surface, and has been a focus area for the Garnero research team. This region may play a crucial role in the birth of mantle plumes that give rise to hot-spot volcanism, as well as the resting place for ancient oceanic crust and lithosphere material, as it falls into the interior.
