Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind you of the session "Geophysical Advances in
Cryospheric Processes, Structure, and Environmental Change," at the AGU
Fall Meeting 2019. This session is co-organized by Near-Surface Geophysics,
Cryosphere and Seismology sections. Our invited presenters are Emma Smith
(Alfred Wegener Institute) and David Rey (Colorado School of Mines).

Please submit your abstract at:
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm19/prelim.cgi/Session/74729

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

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.
