Dear Colleagues,

The recent M6.4 and M7.1 earthquakes in Southern California serve as a
timely reminder to announce our AGU, EGU, and JpGU co-sponsored session on
earthquake foreshocks at a variety of scales.

Please consider submitting your abstract to the following session at the
2019 AGU Fall Meeting by July 31, 2019:

*S009 - Earthquake Foreshocks: From Laboratory to Megathrust Scale*
As one of the most concrete and well-documented examples of precursory
activity, foreshocks have remained at the forefront of seismology research
for over a century. Improved seismic and geodetic network coverage and
instrument quality, new laboratory sensors and techniques, and advanced
data processing and computational methods have yielded significantly more
observational earthquake data over the last decade at a variety of scales
from laboratory microearthquakes to devastating megathrust events. On all
scales and in a variety of tectonic settings, foreshocks are being observed
and catalogued in great detail. In this session we aim to bring together
scientists from any discipline working on, or interested in, earthquake
foreshock occurrence and driving mechanisms. We invite observational,
experimental, and theoretical studies at all scales. We also encourage
submissions from colleagues working on advanced detection and analysis
techniques for improved foreshock identification in an operational setting.

*Conveners: *
Aitaro Kato, University of Tokyo, Japan
Toni Kraft, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Christine J. Ruhl, The University of Tulsa, USA

Cheers,

Christine
