Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit abstracts to our session on Environmental
Seismology at AGU this year.

The session aims to connect scientists applying theoretical, field-based
and experimental seismic methods to Earth surface and near-surface
dynamics, and we invite contributions from geomorphology, cryospheric
sciences, seismology, hazards, volcanology, soil sciences, rock mechanics,
hydrology, and related fields.

Best,

Danica, Brad, Kate and Rick

Recent work has highlighted the generation of elastic waves by processes at
or near Earth’s surface, and seismic techniques are being utilized to
examine increasingly diverse processes, hazards and materials. Seismic
detection, monitoring and characterization methods provide continuous,
real-time observations with high temporal resolution and broad spatial
coverage of multiple sources and inaccessible environments. Areas of recent
advancement include: mass movement (landslides, rockfalls, debris flows,
lahars); hydrologic (groundwater, open water waves/tides, floods,
turbulence, sediment transport), cryospheric (avalanches, icequakes, ice
calving/fracture/deformation, glacial hydrology/sliding), atmospheric and
oceanic phenomena (microseisms, extreme weather, gravity waves); use of
large-N arrays and DAS systems; 4-d imaging of substrate, material and
structural attributes; and analysis of anthropogenic seismic sources and
wave propagation.

This session connects scientists applying theoretical, field-based and
experimental seismic methods to surface and near-surface dynamics across
disciplines. We invite contributions from geomorphology, cryospheric
sciences, seismology, near-surface geophysics, hazards, volcanology, soil
sciences, rock mechanics, hydrology and related fields.
