Dear all,

Apologies for cross-posting.
We would like to draw your attention to our session TS5.1/G3.9/SM1.10 titled "Seismic analysis and geodetic modelling: multi-disciplinary approach to problem-solving" at EGU General Assembly (Vienna, Austria, May 3-8 2020).

Seismic activity and crustal deformation are indicative of underlying plate tectonic and/or volcanic processes. Their connectedness is often non-linear and non-sequential. Seismic activity can result in crustal deformation in a tectonically or volcanically active region, while deformation arising from these forces can harness seismic potency. In isolation, seismic and geodetic (GNSS, InSAR) analysis potentially run the risk of delivering partial inferences, especially in compound geodynamic settings. Evidently, independently obtained results from seismic and geodetic observations are heavily reliant on the data type, methodology, model assumptions, and error estimations. In recent times, there have been several measures to jointly employ seismic and geodetic data to understand complex processes in aforementioned settings. Such studies have made significant contributions to modern and reliable data analysis practices. Therefore, this session aims to explore ongoing research that works towards arriving at comprehensive results from both ends of the spectrum; seismicity, a form of fast deformation, and its relationship with the slower geodetically measured deformation.

The current session invites presentation of research that simultaneously incorporates seismic and geodetic (GNSS, InSAR) techniques to investigate any given tectonic and/or volcanic setting. The study may include analyses of selected earthquakes and related deformation, comparison studies between seismic and geodetic data analysis, volcanic deformation and associated seismicity, and seismic cycle monitoring based on both seismology and geodesy. We also encourage studies using models (analytical or numerical) linking geodetic and seismic research, such as stress-strain models in volcanic and tectonic areas.

We are excited to see presentations on various approaches combining models, seismic and geodetic data sets. We are particularly curious to see the extensive knowledge that the merging of these two sciences can deliver on tectonic and volcanic systems around the world.

The deadline for abstract submission is the January 15, 2020 at 13:00 CET.

We look forward to seeing you at the EGU General Assembly in 2020.
Happy holidays!
