You are welcome to submit abstracts to the session “Seismology for the Energy Transition” at the Seismological Society of America Annual Meeting, San Juan, Puerto Rico, April 17-20, 2023. The abstract submission deadline is 5:00pm PST, January 11, 2023. The following is the session description.

Seismology for the Energy Transition
The energy transition can help mitigate climate changes by progressively shifting from fossil-
based energies to low- or zero-carbon energies, such as wind, solar, hydropower, hydrogen,
geothermal, nuclear, and marine energies, etc. Decarbonization of the energy sector is crucial
for achieving the net-zero goal. Approaches such as geologic carbon storage can enable
decarbonization of some energy sources, such as coal- and natural gas-fired power plants, oil
refineries, cement plants and bioenergy production facilities. The development of new seismic
technologies will play a crucial role in the energy transition. We invite contributions from
research exploring applications of advanced seismic approaches and techniques to the energy
transition process, particularly for subsurface characterization, monitoring and infrastructure
surveillance. We welcome submissions of abstracts on computational, laboratory experimental
and field-scale studies.
