S018. New Results, New Methods and New Technology in Ocean-Bottom Seismology
The field of Ocean Bottom Seismology is rapidly growing. Both passive and active seismic studies require a significant economic investment but provide expanded insights into the planet. Seafloor sensors have been used to extend seismic monitoring beyond historical land-based networks, as well as for structural and geodynamic studies, and to explore the genesis of oceanic contributions to seismic wavefields. Institutional resources as well as instrument pools have facilitated numerous experiments using temporary OBS networks throughout the world’s oceans, and these continue to be deployed. Semi-permanent OBS networks such as those in Japan or Cascadia offer the opportunity to make seafloor seismic observations over extended time scales, providing potentially new observables for dynamic signatures sometimes not perceived in shorter-term deployments. We invite contributions covering all aspects of seafloor seismology, both new scientific results and new technological breakthroughs for instrumentation, communications and deployment.
