Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the AGU 2019 session “*Geophysical
Advances in Cryospheric Processes, Structure, and Environmental Change*.”
This session will showcase the latest geophysical innovations and
revelations in studies of the frozen Earth (permafrost, glaciers, ice
sheets, snow, etc.). This session is co-organized between Cryosphere,
Near-Surface Geophysics, and Seismology sections. We hope you will submit
an abstract and share this announcement with interested colleagues. As a
reminder, the deadline for all submissions is
*Wednesday, 31 July 23:59 EDT.*
*Abstract submission information*:

Thank you,
Stephanie James [USGS]
Dan McGrath [Colorado State University]
Atsuhiro Muto [Temple University]

*Session ID: *74729
*Session Title:* [NS006] Geophysical Advances in Cryospheric Processes,
Structure, and Environmental Change
*Session Description:* The cold regions of our planet are undergoing
unprecedented changes; however, many details of cryospheric processes and
subsurface characteristics are inaccessible beneath or within frozen Earth
materials and thus remain unknown. Geophysical observations are essential
to studies of high-elevation and high-latitude cold regions, and through
ongoing advancements in instrumentation, computing power, and new
measurement strategies, geophysical methods are well positioned to address
many open cryospheric research questions. In this session, we seek
submissions describing advancements, insights, and opportunities provided
by geophysical observations in the study of glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice,
snow, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground. We welcome submissions
using ground and airborne geophysical methods (e.g. ground penetrating
radar, electrical resistivity, nuclear magnetic resonance, electromagnetic,
seismic, gravity etc.) applied to solve cryospheric problems including
characterization, detection, and/or monitoring of cold-region environments.
Studies exploring innovative methods, multidisciplinary approaches, and the
vulnerability of the cryosphere to future changes are particularly
encouraged.
