Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to invite abstract submissions to the first session on
environmental seismology (S008) at the AGU fall meeting this year. Please
consider contributing to this session aimed at bringing interdisciplinary
researchers together to learn about the wide range of novel applications
and methodologies for geophysical tools in Earth surface processes research!

*Session Title:* *(S008) Environmental seismology: using geophysical tools
for Earth surface processes research*
*Section/Focus Group:* Seismology (*co-organized with Earth and Planetary
Surface Processes, Hydrology, and Cryosphere*)
*Invited speakers: *
Niels Hovius - GFZ German Research Centre for Geoscience
Lucia Gualtieri - Princeton University

*Session description: *Recent work has highlighted the generation of
elastic waves by processes at or near the Earth's surface, and seismic
techniques are being utilized to examine an increasingly diverse range of
processes, hazards and materials. Seismic observations with high temporal
resolution and broad spatial coverage of multiple sources and inaccessible
environments. Areas of recent advancement include: mass movement
(landslides, rockfalls, debris flows, lahars); hydrologic (groundwater,
open water waves/tides, outburst floods, turbulence, sediment transport),
cryospheric (avalanches, icequakes, calving, ice fracture/deformation,
glacial hydrology/sliding), atmospheric and oceanic (microseisms, extreme
weather, gravity waves) phenomena; use of large-N arrays; 4-d imaging of
substrate, material, and structural attributes; and anthropogenic sources.
This session connects scientists applying theoretical, field-based and
experimental seismic methods to Earth surface and near-surface dynamics. We
invite contributions from geomorphology, cryospheric sciences, seismology,
hazards, volcanology, soil sciences, rock mechanics, hydrology, and related

The deadline for abstract submissions is Wednesday,* August 1*, at 23:59 EDT.
We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!
