Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to an upcoming session at the AGU 2023
Fall Meeting, scheduled to take place in San Francisco from December 11th
to 15th, 2023.

The session is titled "*The Contribution of Geophysical Prospecting to the
Characterization of Seismic Site Conditions for Seismic Hazard Assessment “
(S031) *
*https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm23/prelim.cgi/Session/185330
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm23/prelim.cgi/Session/185330 *
The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, *2 August 2023 at 23:59 EDT*.

*Conveners*:
Marta Pischiutta, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Italy
Vincenzo Sapia, Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Italy
Francesco Panzera, University of Catania, Italy
Sebastiano D’Amico, University of Malta

*Session Description*: *Site effects are produced by local geological
conditions and play a key role in seismic hazard assessment and mapping
since they can affect the amplitude, frequency, and duration of ground
motion. They include the effects of surface and sub-surface topography,
stratigraphic discontinuities, rock fracturing, and soil layering. **The
site response is often assessed by using numerical modeling, earthquake
data, and ambient vibrations. 1D/2D velocity models are obtained using
active- and passive-source geophysical surveys (e.g., linear or 2D, single-
or multi-station surface-based array methods, reflection/refraction,
down-hole and cross-hole seismic methods). However, since site effects are
generally caused by 3-D subsoil features, the exploitation of 3-D imaging
approach and modeling would be more suitable. **This session encourages
discussions on innovative geophysical applications for site
characterization, along with multidisciplinary and multi-scale studies,
pulling together a variety of datasets that are employed to shed light on
not-straightforward site characterization problems over different
geological contexts.*

We eagerly anticipate your participation and valuable contributions during
the conference in San Francisco.

Best regards,
