Dear Colleagues. Kindly note.

Thank you,

Rick, Brad, Will, and Jamey

The SSA 2020 Annual Meeting will be held in Albuquerque, 27-30 April.

The abstract submission period is now open and closes Tuesday, 14 January 2020 at 5 p.m. Pacific. Registration for the Annual Meeting will open 2 January 2020. Remember to register before the preregistration deadline–20 March–to secure early-bird pricing.

Environmental and Near Surface Seismology: From Glaciers and Rivers to Engineered Structures and Beyond
Environmental seismology is the study of seismic signals generated at and near the surface created by environmental forces in the atmosphere, hydrosphere or solid Earth. Contributions to this session are welcome on a wide variety of topics including --but not limited to-- the seismic signals associated with the microseism, landslides, rock falls, debris flows, lahars, snow avalanches, cliff or pinnacle resonance, river bedload transport, flood events, fluid flow in open and confined channels, water gravity waves or infragravity waves, tides, sea ice variability, glacier stick-slip, iceberg calving, glacier crevassing, subglacial hydrology, hurricanes, tornadoes or anthropogenic sources. Studies focusing on engineering applications are additionally welcome and may include studies of groundwater and remediation, site characterization for geologic and seismic hazard applications, monitoring of critical infrastructure and geotechnical applications. In addition, other processes monitored by seismic waves such as permafrost, groundwater in confined or karst aquifers, glacier mass, using seismometers or DAS (distributed acoustic sensing; fiber-optic seismology) data are welcome. Contributions that seek to conduct monitoring, create physical or statistical models of source processes or systems, detect events, characterize a wave propagation environment or interact with other branches of the Earth or social sciences are additionally encouraged. Submissions running the gamut from site-specific case studies to ongoing methodological advances are warmly welcomed.
