Dear Colleagues,

the Covid-19 pandemic has made us experience a variety of new and
exciting meeting formats. In that sense also EGU2021 has been decided to
be fully virtual. Please find details on the vEGU21 format at the end of
this e-mail.

You are invited to share your projects on-line from 19–30 April 2021
submitting your abstract to the session *SM2.1 Sensing ground
translation, rotation, and strain - instrumentation, theory and

Note that abstract submission deadline is *13 January 2021, 13:00 CET.*

We are looking forward to receive your contributions and

wish you a Happy New Year

*Session Description:**

New developments in translation, rotation and strain sensing (such as
fibre-optic gyroscopes and fiber-optic cables) enable the complete
observation of seismic ground motion and deformation. Applications are
manifold, ranging from the reduction of non-uniqueness in seismic
inverse problems over the correction of tilt effects to the
characterization, separation and reconstruction of the seismic wavefield.

Instrumental developments in ground-motion sensing overlap with
considerable improvements in optical and atom interferometry for
inertial rotation and gravity sensing which has led to a variety of
improved sensor concepts over the last two decades.

We invite all contributions on theoretical advances to the seismic
wavefield gradient analysis, on novel measurement techniques, and on all
aspects of applications in seismology, geodesy, planetary exploration,
gravitational wave detection and fundamental physics.

*vEGU21 - Format:*

* During *vEGU21: Gather Online*, all sessions will run in the *new
EGU virtual PICO (vPICO) session format*, which will offer the
opportunity to address a truly worldwide and diverse audience.
Sessions will be divided in time blocks of about 20 abstracts each.
All time blocks will start with 2-minute presentations by all
authors who have abstracts in that time block, moderated by a
* Following the 2-minute presentations, each abstract will have a
breakout webinar during which questions to individual authors can be
posted. After the 2-minute presentations, each author will join
their individual breakout webinar, where they will be available for
chats and further discussion. Attendees will see all breakout
webinar links in the online programme so that they can visit
multiple authors during the remaining session time.
* For the 2-minute presentations, authors are asked to upload a single
slide (*.pdf, *.ppt/pptx) at least 24 hours prior to the session’s
start summarizing the essence of the research in the meeting
abstract to anchor their presentation.
