RE: Australia seismology colleges
Hello there,

My name is Ethan and my father is dentist too and to be frank its a nearly similar situation because i too have interest in Geology and seismology.

Following are some of the universities which according to will be useful for your aspects :

1. The University of Western Australia
2. Curtin University
3. University of South Australia

Also would like say that Australia is a great country to live in and also for educational purpose.

Ethan Stark

Thanks!

Hi Tom,
You certainly don't need to come all the way to Australia do study seismology or paleoseismology. There are lots of good Universities and colleges in the USA that have good programs. In fact, although I work on seismology in Australia I have actually done all my study in other counties. I grew up in New Zealand and did my undergrad studies there and then did my PhD in Canada. I would suggest your son starts his studies in the USA and then if he really wants to travel and study in other countries he can then look at other options.
Seismology and paleoseismology are quite different in some ways.
Seismology is the study of seismic waves travelling through the earth, quite often these are from earthquakes but they can be other things too. From this we learn about the structure of the interior of the earth and how it might respond to strong shaking from an earthquake. To study seismology you need a lot of physics and mathematics. Some computer science and earth science is helpful too.
Paleoseismology is the study of historical earthquakes. Quite often this involves digging trenches through faults, interpreting the geology and dating rocks to find out when the fault last ruptured. It can also involve looking at detailed images of the landscape to identify where faults might be. For Paleoseismology you would want to focus on geology, especially structural geology. Perhaps take courses in GIS, chemistry, physics and statistics as well. I am not a paleoseismologist so can't tell you for sure.
Anyway, it's good to keep your options open because you will never know what you might enjoy and want to pursue.
Natalie

Great point you discuss very perfectly

RE: Australia seismology colleges
Most of the big Universities in Australia teach some kind of seismology in their Earth Science programs. This includes:
The Australian National University
University of Western Australia
University of Tasmania
University of Queensland...
