Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the session “*SM5.1 Advances in
fibre-optic technologies for geophysical applications*” organized in the
context of the 2020 EGU General Assembly (Vienna, Austria, 3-8th May 2020).

Fibre-optic technologies is bound to become a standard tool in geophysical
applications. There have been significant breakthroughs in developing
highly sensitive sensors and devices to interrogate fibre cables at very
high precision over very large distances. Recent experiments both onshore
and in submarine environment have demonstrated the capability of
fibre-optic technologies in: (i) detecting a variety of seismic sources
(including ambient noise, local and teleseismic earthquakes, volcanic
events); (ii) monitoring large-scale engineering infrastructures (dams,
tunnels, bridges, pipelines, boreholes, etc…) and (ii)
warning for
natural hazards (e.g.: landslides and sinkhole formation).

We welcome contributions that involve the application of fibre-optic
sensors or cables interrogators in seismology, geodesy, geophysics,
volcanology, natural hazards, from laboratory to large-scale field tests.

We kindly invite you to join us for sharing your research results. Hoping
the initiative will meet your favour, we look forward to receiving your
contribution at

The deadline for the abstract submission is *15 January 2020, 13:00 CET*

Feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone who might be interested in this

Sincerely yours,

Gilda Currenti, Marc-Andre Gutscher, Philippe Jousset, Shane Murphy, Zack
