Hi all,

We would like to invite those interested to attend and submit abstracts to a session we are running in the Geodesy and Tectonophysics sections at this year's AGU Fall Meeting, "Time-dependent deformation in geodetic data: advances in detection, modeling and interpretation," session G024 (ID# 13407).

Session Description:
Today space geodesy provides unprecedented coverage of the Earth's surface and can detect time-dependent deformation on time scales ranging from seconds to decades and over length scales ranging from meters to plate boundaries. The accurate detection of these deformation signals, in concert with accurate modelling of the processes that drive them, is of vital importance in topics ranging from studies of the seismic cycle and volcanism to the understanding of natural and anthropogenic hydrological processes. We welcome contributions on both the theoretical side - advances in algorithms for the detection of time-dependent signals in geodetic data and in the modelling of deformation processes - and on the applied side - uses of these techniques to gain insights into deformation processes in both tectonic and non-tectonic contexts - with the goal that the space geodesist can find the best practices for every step of a research project within a single session.

Conveners:
Chris Rollins, Caltech
Adriano Gualandi, Caltech
Jessica Murray, USGS Menlo Park
Mong-Han Huang, NASA JPL

As a heads up, those interested in our session will likely also be interested in the session being run by Matt King and Alvaro Santamaria-Gomez, "Separating and explaining multiple signals in geodetic data," session G021 (ID# 12290). Regardless of which session you choose to present in, we hope that those interested will attend both sessions, as this essentially doubles the amount of time to exchange ideas and best practices in this discipline.

Feel free to send any questions or comments my way at jcrollin<at>caltech.edu, and we hope to see you there! As a reminder, the abstract submission deadline is 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on August 3.

Thanks,
Chris
