Hi everyone,

the EGU abstract submission deadline is getting closer, and we would like
to invite you to submit an abstract to the session:

*Earthquake processes in volcanic environments*
SM6.1/GD3.5/GMPV5.3/NH2.3
(See session description below)

Invited speakers:
*Christopher Bean* (Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies),
*Michelle Parks* (University of Iceland).

We encourage all contributions focusing on volcano seismology.

Hope to see you in Vienna,

Vala, Kristín, Halldór, Ivan, Ozgun

_______________________________________

Please be aware about the below dates for the EGU General Assembly, Vienna
| Austria | 23–28 April 2017.

Abstract submission deadline: *11 Jan 2017 *

Note that Vienna will be extremely busy just before and during EGU because
of the Vienna Marathon (on April 23) and another conference at the same
time as EGU.* Please make your bookings way in advance* (i.e. as soon as
possible).

Earthquake processes in volcanic environments

Convener: Vala Hjörleifsdóttir, Kristín Jónsdóttir, Halldór Geirsson , Ivan
Lokmer, Ali Ozgun Konca

Abstract submission:
http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2017/abstractsubmission/24000

Seismicity at volcanoes is fundamental for monitoring and understanding
volcanic systems, their structure and the processes that occur therein. A
diverse range of volcanic processes produce measurable elastic waves,
including magma intrusions and dike propagation, caldera deformation,
faulting, landslides, explosive activity, fluid flow and more. Earthquakes
in volcanic environments are often anomalous, resulting in unusual source
mechanisms which challenge interpretation and common methods of analysis.
In addition, seismic catalogues from volcanic settings tend to deviate from
those collected in tectonic environments, raising questions about our
understanding of earthquake processes and the effect the different
environments have on various catalogue data distributions.

Recent studies in volcano seismology pose interesting questions, on e.g.
the source mechanisms of the caldera collapse related Bárðarbunga
earthquakes and the origin of repeating small tremor-like earthquakes that
occur at unusual depths, many km below were most brittle earthquakes occur.
Another example of the seismicity under debate are LP events, for which
recent studies suggest that may be linked to slow slip faulting in the weak
uppermost part of the volcano.

This session aims to bring together a range of Earth Scientists, who employ
different techniques, within the field of seismology and high-rate
deformation studies, based on GPS-, strain-, accelerometer- and/or
tilt-data to study earthquake processes that occur in volcanic settings. We
welcome contributions assessing the study of earthquake source mechanism,
seismic tremor as well as the study of earthquake catalogues where the aim
is to reveal the underlying processes that take place in volcanic
environments.
