Overview. Dziewonski, A. and Romanowicz, B. In Treatise on Geophysics, volume 1, pages 1--29. Elsevier, Amsterdam, Réédition Sous-presse edition, 2014. 2007
abstract   bibtex   
In the first part of this overview we discuss briefly the role of the studies of the Earth's structure in geophysics and follow with a short presentation of the contents of individual chapters. Then, we present an outline of history of seismology, beginning with the first recording in Germany of teleseismic waves from an earthquake in Japan in 1889 and the development of seismological theory, observations and their interpretation. We trace in more detail the developments in the 1950's and afterwards. We emphasize the role of computers and broadband digital seismographic systems in the rapid progress during the last 30, or so, years. In the last part of the overview we discuss some problems in global seismic tomography emphasizing the importance of using data sets that have good control over the structure in different depth ranges. The structure in the transition zone (410-650. km depth) is an example of a region in which the gap between the resolution provided by surface waves and teleseismic travel times must be bridged by inclusion of overtone data. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
