The InSight lander will deliver geophysical instruments to Mars in 2018, including seismometers installed directly on the surface (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure, SEIS). Routine operations will be split into two services, the Mars Structure Service (MSS) and Marsquake Service (MQS), which will be responsible, respectively, for defining the structure models and seismicity catalogs from the mission. The MSS will deliver a series of products before the landing, during the operations… Expand
The Marsquake Service: Securing Daily Analysis of SEIS Data and Building the Martian Seismicity Catalogue for InSight
The InSight mission expects to operate a geophysical observatory on Mars for at least two Earth years from late 2018. InSight includes a seismometer package, SEIS. The Marsquake Service (MQS) isExpand
MSS/1: Single‐Station and Single‐Event Marsquake Inversion
SEIS, the seismometer of the InSight mission, which landed on Mars on 26 November 2018, is monitoring the seismic activity of the planet. The goal of the Mars Structure Service (MSS) is to provide,Expand
The Noise Model of the SEIS Seismometer of the InSight Mission to Mars
The SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structures) instrument on board the InSight mission to Mars is the critical instrument for determining the interior structure of Mars, the current level ofExpand
Bayesian inversion of the Martian structure using geodynamic constraints
The ongoing InSight mission has recently deployed very broad band seismometers to record the Martian seismic activity. These recordings constitute the first seismic data set collected at theExpand
Atmospheric Science with InSight
In November 2018, for the first time a dedicated geophysical station, the InSight lander, will be deployed on the surface of Mars. Along with the two main geophysical packages, the Seismic ExperimentExpand
Pre-mission InSights on the Interior of Mars
The Interior exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport (InSight) Mission will focus on Mars’ interior structure and evolution. The basic structure of crust, mantle, andExpand
On the Detectability and Use of Normal Modes for Determining Interior Structure of Mars
The InSight mission to Mars is well underway and will be the first mission to acquire seismic data from a planet other than Earth. In order to maximise the science return of the InSight data, aExpand
The Marsquake catalogue from InSight, sols 0–478
Abstract The InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission began collecting high quality seismic data on Mars in February 2019. This manuscriptExpand
The seismicity of Mars
The InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) mission landed in Elysium Planitia on Mars on 26 November 2018 and fully deployed its seismometer by theExpand
ORACLE: A mission concept to study Mars’ climate, surface and interior
Abstract A comprehensive knowledge of the Martian climate requires a better understanding of the formation and evolution of the polar caps. Accurate measurements of mass, volume, and composition ofExpand


Verifying single-station seismic approaches using Earth-based data: Preparation for data return from the InSight mission to Mars
Abstract The planned InSight mission will deliver a single seismic station containing 3-component broadband and short-period sensors to the surface of Mars in 2016. While much of the progress inExpand
Estimates of seismic activity in the Cerberus Fossae region of Mars
[1] The 2016 NASA InSight lander is the first planetary mission designed to study the deep interior of Mars. InSight's Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) package will quantify globalExpand
Evaluating the Wind-Induced Mechanical Noise on the InSight Seismometers
The SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structures) instrument onboard the InSight mission to Mars is the critical instrument for determining the interior structure of Mars, the current level ofExpand
Single-station and single-event marsquake location and inversion for structure using synthetic Martian waveforms
Abstract In anticipation of the upcoming InSight mission, which is expected to deploy a single seismic station on the Martian surface in November 2018, we describe a methodology that enables locatingExpand
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 theExpand
Working models for spatial distribution and level of Mars' seismicity
[1] We present synthetic catalogs of Mars quakes, intended to be used for performance assessments of future seismic networks on the planet. We have compiled a new inventory of compressional andExpand
Seismic Coupling of Short-Period Wind Noise Through Mars’ Regolith for NASA’s InSight Lander
NASA’s InSight lander will deploy a tripod-mounted seismometer package onto the surface of Mars in late 2018. Mars is expected to have lower seismic activity than the Earth, so minimisation ofExpand
10.03 – Planetary Seismology
To date, successful in situ extraterrestrial seismic measurements have been limited to data collected during the Apollo lunar missions. These data have significantly contributed to our understandingExpand
Seismic detection of meteorite impacts on Mars
Abstract Meteorite impacts provide a potentially important seismic source for probing Mars’ interior. It has recently been shown that new craters can be detected from orbit using high resolutionExpand
Predicted detection rates of regional-scale meteorite impacts on Mars with the InSight short-period seismometer
Abstract In 2016 NASA will launch the InSight discovery-class mission, which aims to study the detailed internal structure of Mars for the first time. Short- and long-period seismometers form a majorExpand
