Jeannot Trampert is known for his research on the Earth’s mantle and the processes that take place there. Trampert discovered hitherto unknown flow patterns in the mantle deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In the past twenty years, he has refined his ideas about the structure of the mantle and united the disciplines of geology, geochemistry and geophysics, which until then had often operated separately. In recent years, Trampert and his group have studied how best to predict earthquakes using neural networks that recognise patterns automatically in the early stages of seismic activity.
