Professor 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.
Wysession has a 20-minute ‘movie’ of the Earth’s core, mantle and surface, showing what happens below us in a earthquake when one seismic wave follows another, wreaking havoc and making the Earth shudder. He is the first geologist to map the Earth’s core-mantle boundary, some 2,000 miles below our feet.
