Dear Colleagues,

We would like to let you know about our session: "A117 - Sounds of the Solar System: Geophysical and Planetary Acoustics". We welcome submissions regarding the geophysical acoustics of Earth and other planets. Session description is below. See you in San Francisco!


Danny Bowman

Forces imposed on the atmosphere of Earth and other planets can create acoustic waves that travel vast distances, providing information on their source and the transmission medium. On Earth, low frequency sound ("infrasound") sensors can capture signals from natural sources (volcanoes, earthquakes, severe storms, bolides, gravity-driven flows etc.) and human activities (chemical and nuclear explosions, wind turbines, dams, etc.). These sounds can be inverted to determine atmospheric structure. They may also carry energy into the upper atmosphere, creating localized heating. The recent detection of Martian infrasound via the InSight lander has highlighted the scientific dividends of acoustic monitoring on other solar system bodies as well. In fact, studies of acoustic wave propagation have also been performed for Venus, Jupiter, and Titan. This session is dedicated to highlighting studies of acoustic waves on the Earth and beyond. We invite theoretical, numerical, and experimental studies in geophysical and planetary acoustics.
