Dear colleagues,

With the deadline for submissions for the EGU General Assembly 2022 (EGU22)
fast approaching (*12 January 2022, 13:00 CET*) we would like to remind you
of our session *SM2.1: Advances in fiber-optic technologies for geophysical
applications,* which will be held during the EGU22 in Vienna, Austria from
the 3rd to the 8th of April. The session described below will feature
invited presentations from Diane Rivet (GeoAzur) and Andre Herrero (INGV).

We welcome contributions that involve the application of fiber-optic cables
or sensors in seismology, geodesy, geophysics, natural hazards,
oceanography, urban environment, geothermal application with an emphasis on
laboratory studies, large-scale field tests, and modeling. We hope that you
will consider sharing your research in our session. More information about
the session can be found here
https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU22/session/42865.

In 2022, the EGU aims to provide an on-site experience again for those
attending in-person, while at the same time introducing new concepts to
include virtual attendees as much as possible.

Kind regards,

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

Session Description:
----------------------------
Recently, there have been significant breakthroughs in the use of
fiber-optic sensing techniques to interrogate cables at high precision both
on land and at sea as well as in boreholes and at the surface. Laser
reflectometry using both fit-to-purpose and commercial fiber-optic cables
have successfully detected a variety of signals including microseism, local
and teleseismic earthquakes, volcanic events, ocean dynamics, etc. Other
laser-based techniques can be used to monitor distributed strain,
temperature, and even chemicals at a scale and to an extent previously
unattainable with conventional geophysical methods.

We welcome any contributions to recent development in the fields of
applications, instrumentation, and theoretical advances for geophysics with
fiber-optic sensing techniques. These may include - but are not limited to
- application of fiber-optic cables or sensors in seismology, geodesy,
geophysics, natural hazards, oceanography, urban environment, geothermal
application, etc. with an emphasis on laboratory studies, large-scale field
tests, and modeling. We also encourage contributions on data analysis
techniques, machine learning, data management, instruments performances and
comparisons as well as new experimental field studies.
