Please consider submitting an abstract to our session on array seismology at the General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission. The meeting is Sept. 2-8, 2018, and abstracts are due on March 31, 2018. We will have a short course on arrays for students and post-docs Aug. 27-31. We hope to see you in Malta!

Compared to a single seismometer, a seismic array provides enhanced signal-to-noise ratio and strong constraints on the direction of incoming seismic energy. Historically, these properties have made arrays useful for detecting and locating small seismic events, and seismic arrays are a critical component of the International Monitoring System that operates in support of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty. In recent years, the number and density of seismic stations have increased and new applications of array seismology have emerged such as imaging the rupture properties of large earthquakes with back-projection. In this session, we invite presentations on new advances in array processing and the use of arrays to better understand all types of seismic sources, including tectonic earthquakes, induced earthquakes, landslides, explosions, and microseisms.
