Dear 2018 IRIS Workshop Attendees,

Please consider attending the Special Interest Group Meeting on *Seismic
Background Noise* at the 2018 IRIS workshop next week.

When: Wednesday, June 13th, 2:30-3:30 pm

Where: Acoma Room

Conveners: Robert Anthony, Keith Koper, Adam Ringler, and David Wilson


Improving our understanding of the background seismic noise field could
help to improve the resolution at which we are able to record transient
signals (e.g. earthquakes and explosions). Seismic noise and the physical
generating mechanisms are also of interest in their own right and very
broadband in nature (e.g. high-frequency anthropogenic noise to long-period
Earth hum). This SIG will explore the current state of our understanding
in seismic background noise as well as look at some unresolved questions in
seismic noise generation that could be addressed in the future. We invite
short contributions on research that make use of seismic noise or study the
generation of persistent background signals.
