Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the latest in the British Geophysical Association New Advances in Geophysics series of meetings will be held on the ‘Future of passive seismic acquisition’ at the Royal Society of Edinburgh, UK on November 12th-13th 2018.

More information, including links for registration can be found on our meeting website:

Over the last 20-30 years there have been big changes in the development, deployment and analysis of passive seismic data. Recently there has been a move towards collecting large data sets, either across continents or locally through microseismic monitoring on faults, volcanoes or for energy production. This includes an increasing use of low power, easy to deploy land sensors and marine acquisition through ocean bottom seismometers or autonomous drones.
This meeting is a chance to reflect on past successes, think about what the next 20-30 years will bring and what we as a community will need in the future. There will be an exciting program with international speakers from engineering and geoscience backgrounds from both academia and industry. We also invite submissions from others interested in passive seismic acquisition, from instrumentation design, past and future deployments to the new scientific methods that require new innovative instrumentation.
We particularly welcome early career scientists and PhD students to contribute to the meeting.
We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh,

Kind regards

The NAG meeting committee (James Hammond, Nick Rawlinson, Karin Sigloch & Brian Baptie)
