Research

Dr. Virieux's research is oriented to seismic-wave propagation modeling through field experiments and theoretical modeling in heterogeneous media. Traveltime tomographies based on ray theory or full-waveform inversion based on volumetric numerical methods solving elastodynamic equations allow high-resolution imaging of crustal structures (Mt. Vesuve/Italy; Corinth Gulf/Greece; Vallhall/Norway). Multiparametric reconstruction of the earth at various scales from 3D important databases is the current challenge of engineers and researchers in the framework of the consortium SEISCOPE supported by many industrial enterprises led in part by Virieux. Seismic dynamic-rupture imaging related to earthquakes has also attracted his attention (because he completed his thesis on this topic) through international collaborations and national support from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.


"Jean Virieux, 2008"

Biography 2008 [2]

Jean Virieux has been trained (1978) at the École Normale Supérieure (Paris) in physics. He defended a French state thesis in 1986. He has been a professor at the Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis since 1991. His main scientific interest is seismic wave propagation and related topics such as seismic source imaging and seismic structure imaging.

Best Paper in Geophysics 2008

Dr. Virieaux shared the award for Best Paper in Geophysics in 2008 with Hafedh Ben-Hadj-Ali and Stéphane Operto.[3]
