Dear Colleagues,

Please consider to submit an abstract to the AGU session *NH010:
"Ionospheric and Atmospheric Monitoring of Natural Hazards: Existing
Terrestrial and Potential Planetary Applications »*, with our apologies
for multiple posting.

Abstracts can be submitted via the AGU website

The deadline for submission is August, 3.

The detailed description of the session is as follows:
Natural hazards, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, have
always been significant threats to humans. While it still seems
difficult to predict such events, the challenge now is to monitor them
in real and quasi-real time, and to issue potential warnings. Besides
“traditional” instruments of detection (seismometers, underwater
pressure sensors, gas emission detectors, etc.), the atmospheric,
ionospheric and electromagnetic variations following natural hazards can
potentially be used for the monitoring and detection of impending
hazards in real-time. Recent development of ground-based
multi-instrumental networks, as well as new satellite missions, has
opened new and innovative ways for detecting such events in-space. In
addition, recent progress in modeling of atmospheric/ionospheric
perturbations due to natural hazards promises new methods applicable for
other planets.
We solicit observational, theoretical and modeling contributions on
detection and monitoring of hazards of natural and anthropogenic
origins, including from atmosphere and ionosphere. Studies on precursory
signals are also welcome.

With best regards,
