Dear colleagues [with apologies for multiple postings]

We would like to draw your attention to the session S029 “Temporal changes of seismic structure in response to a great earthquake” at the AGU Fall Assembly 2016 in San Francisco and hope that you will consider submitting an abstract to this session.

The abstract submission deadline is 3rd August 2016.

Session description:

Temporal changes of the lithospheric structure have been a major topic in Solid earth and stay always challenging to detect small variations of the seismic structure associated to great earthquakes. Associated deformations (uplift or subsidence) are actually not well understood even if several models suggested such as opening or closing cracks, stress loading, changes of water condition in the crust. Moreover, looking at the seismic structures along subduction zones in East Asia, it appears also that these structures can be interpretation as asperities which potential can generate future great events.
The session will focus on geophysical imaging of megathrust subduction zones by using different kind of geophysical data in order to provide information of the lithospheric properties and temporal changes of these regions. We invite oral and poster contributions looking at different megathrust subduction zone and using different approaches as ambient field, controlled sources, seismic tomography, electromagnetism, gravity, GNSS, InSAR.

Solicited speakers:

** Yan Hu (University of California, Berkeley)
** Kaoru Sawazaki (NIED, Tsukuba)

With best regards
