Dear colleagues,

it is our great pleasure to announce our 2018 AGU Fall Meeting session on:

Near-Surface Geophysics and its Applicability to Volcanic Environments.

We invite contributions covering all aspects of near-surface geophysics, including theory, laboratory experiments, modeling, inversion, field experiments, equipment, as well as hydrological and geothermal applications. We would like the contributions to demonstrate a connection, or discussion of the applicability, to volcanic environments.

Our listed invited speakers are:

* Matthew Haney - USGS, Alaska Volcano Observatory
* Paul Bedrosian - USGS

More information on the session can be found below, including a link for abstract submissions. We herewith would like to warmly invite you to submit an abstract to this session.
Abstract submission is already open, and the deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 23:59 EDT.
The meeting will be held on December 10-14, 2018 in Washington D.C.

We sincerely hope you will consider submitting one or multiple abstracts to our session, such that together we can make this a great success. Also, please feel free to forward this announcement to any interested colleagues, students, and/or organizations.

Best wishes,

Niels Grobbe - University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, USA
Andrew Binley - University of Lancaster, UK
Mark Everett - Texas A&M University, USA
Charles Connor - University of South Florida, USA

Near-Surface Geophysics and its Applicability to Volcanic Environments

Session Description:

Volcanic environments present interesting geophysical challenges. The complex terrain and inherently 3D subsurface require advanced near-surface geophysical data acquisition and modeling, for example, to account for high surface electrical resistivities or excessive seismic scattering. Due to complexities at various spatial scales, geophysical method diversity and multi-physics approaches are key for successful characterization. Volcanic environments potentially offer geothermal resources. Acquiring a plurality of geophysical data types can help assess the geothermal potential. Volcanic geology can impact hydrology tremendously (e.g. dikes, chemical alteration, fractures); improving hydrological models requires hydrogeophysical data. Depending on the setting, volcanoes may be covered by glaciers or experience permafrost conditions, adding complexity to their geophysical characterization. We invite contributions covering all aspects of near-surface geophysics, including theory, laboratory experiments, modeling, inversion, field experiments, equipment, as well as hydrological and geothermal applications. We would like the contributions to demonstrate a connection, or discussion of the applicability, to volcanic environments.
