Celebrating AGU 100
This page archives the Seismology Section's initiative to celebrate the AGU 100. This initiative highlights the excellent, ground-breaking seismology research published in AGU journals or monographs over the last 100 years. It is a list that both honors and celebrates the contributions of the past and present, and reflects the diversity in people and of research within the current and future AGU membership. Every week up to December 2019, we uploaded links to a set of 3-4 papers or monographs. Preserved below is this list.
Submissions were solicited from the seismology community, using the following questions for guidance. What articles in AGU journals were fundamental to your own research? What do you consider a great paper in seismology? What article used seismic data to transform our understanding of the Earth or other planets? Initial suggestions were provided by AGU Fellows in Seismology.
100 papers in Seismology for 100 years of AGU

The Seismology section executive committee made effort to ensure the final 100 papers chosen reflected the breadth of seismology and allied fields. The order of papers and sub-disciplines posted throughout the year should not be construed as a relative ranking.
Questions on the initiative and recommendations may be sent to Suzan van der Lee at email@example.com.
