InSight’s Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) provides a unique and unprecedented opportunity to conduct the first geotechnical survey of the Martian soil by taking advantage of the repeated seismic signals that will be generated by the mole of the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3). Knowledge of the elastic properties of the Martian regolith have implications to material strength and can constrain models of water content, and provide context to geological processes… 
Constraints on the shallow elastic and anelastic structure of Mars from InSight seismic data
Mars’s seismic activity and noise have been monitored since January 2019 by the seismometer of the InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) lander. At
Seismic investigations of the Martian near-surface at the InSight landing site
The InSight ultra-sensitive broadband seismometer package (SEIS) was installed on the Martian surface with the goal to study the seismicity on Mars and the deep interior of the Planet. A second
Geology and Physical Properties Investigations by the InSight Lander
Although not the prime focus of the InSight mission, the near-surface geology and physical properties investigations provide critical information for both placing the instruments (seismometer and
A Reconstruction Algorithm for Temporally Aliased Seismic Signals Recorded by the InSight Mars Lander
TLDR
An algorithm is proposed to reconstruct signals beyond the classical Nyquist frequency limit by enforcing a sparsity constraint on the signal in a modified Radon transform domain and shows how the proposed algorithm can be used to reconstruct the high‐frequency hammering signal at very high resolution.
Rayleigh Wave Ellipticity Modeling and Inversion for Shallow Structure at the Proposed InSight Landing Site in Elysium Planitia, Mars
The SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure) instrument onboard the InSight mission will be the first seismometer directly deployed on the surface of Mars. From studies on the Earth and the
Influence of Body Waves, Instrumentation Resonances, and Prior Assumptions on Rayleigh Wave Ellipticity Inversion for Shallow Structure at the InSight Landing Site
Based on an updated model of the regolith’s elastic properties, we simulate the ambient vibrations background wavefield recorded by InSight’s Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) on Mars
SEIS: Insight’s Seismic Experiment for Internal Structure of Mars
TLDR
The science goals of the experiment and the rationale used to define its requirements are described, and the hardware, from the sensors to the deployment system and associated performance, including transfer functions of the seismic sensors and temperature sensors are described.
Initial results from the InSight mission on Mars
NASA’s InSight (Interior exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission landed in Elysium Planitia on Mars on 26 November 2018. It aims to determine the interior
Sparse Reconstruction of Aliased Seismic Signals Recorded During the Insight Mars Mission
TLDR
The structure in the data due to thousands of repeated, only gradually varying hammering signals as the heat probe slowly penetrates into the ground is exploited and reconstructed by enforcing a sparsity constraint in a modified Radon transform domain.
