Special Issue "Seismic Tomography"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Seismic tomography is one of the most powerful techniques able to illuminate the structure of the Earth’s deep interior. An increasing number of works have focussed on seismic tomography studies using different approaches and types of waveforms, namely: body waves, surface waves, or seismic noise. The structural 3D images are complemented with 3D images on the attenuation and anisotropy properties. Despite the progression of observational data and modelling and computational capabilities, we still face a lot of controversial aspects related to the geodynamical processes in the Earth (thermal and mechanical evolution, dynamic interplay between surface tectonics and mantle convection, interaction between intracontinental/continental margin tectonics, mantle flow, fluid motion, etc.). The scope of this Special Issue is to provide new findings and perspectives on lithosphere/mantle dynamics in different tectonic environments by bringing together high-resolution tomography inversions and related investigations.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
