Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our AGU session *"S013: Imaging
the Earth I: Theory and methods at reservoir and local scales**" (Session
ID#: * *13058)*. Please see below the detailed session description.

Confirmed invited speaker:
Ru-shan Wu (University of California Santa Cruz )

Abstract submission deadline: *3 August, 11:59 P.M. EDT*

Session Description:
This session focuses on new mathematical, computational, and theoretical
breakthroughs in seismic imaging and waveform inversion to address
challenges in inversion and imaging. We welcome topics along but not
limited to the following lines: initial model building, nonlinear and other
novel inversion strategy, inversion of sources, limited data acquisition,
multiples and multiple scattering, role of low frequencies and wavenumber,
and quantifying uncertainties and artifacts in the inversion.
Modeled/synthetic data, blind tests, both successful and unsuccessful
real-data case studies, in exploration and reservoir geophysics and other
related areas are encouraged to submit. This session is complementary to
session Imaging the Earth II: From Data to Processes on regional to global
scales. Together, they are intended to promote communication between
exploration and global seismology.
