Michael E. Wysession is an expert on the Earth’s inner structure. He has mapped various sections of the Earth and is most noted for his map of the Earth’s core-mantle boundary. He created a 20-minute movie of the Earth’s core, mantle and surface, showing what happens below us in an earthquake when one seismic wave follows another, wreaking havoc and making the Earth shudder. Wysession, who is the first geologist to map the Earth’s core-mantle boundary, some 2,000 miles below our feet, is a great explainer of the Earth’s functions and processes. His film was supported financially by the National Science Foundation and is available to high school and college teachers nationally and internationally. Wysession also manages a wide array of seismometers in the United States.
