Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to this 2018 Fall AGU session:

New Frontiers in Global Seismic Monitoring and Earthquake Research (S021)

The past decade has seen improvements in computational efficiency, seismic
data coverage, and communication technology driven by societal expectation
for timely, accurate information. While aspects of earthquake research have
taken advantage of this evolution, the adoption of improvements in
earthquake monitoring has not been fully leveraged. In real-time
monitoring, earthquakes are characterized in a vacuum, without knowledge of
past events. New data types may help characterize earthquakes more quickly
and accurately. New opportunities exist for rapid communication. With these
advances, global seismic monitoring can improve the quality and timeliness
of information shared with the public. We solicit contributions that tackle
these issues, including new approaches to earthquake detection, location,
source characterization, and impact assessment. We seek to identify
priorities of future monitoring efforts, what new technologies can improve
the speed and accuracy of monitoring, and how to improve communication and
coordination between groups involved in earthquake response and research.

Thank you,

Gavin Hayes, Paul Earle, David Wald, and William Yeck
