Dear Colleague,

We would like to draw your attention to session *S9: Cryoseismology*, to
be held during the virtual IAGA-IASPEI 2021 Joint Scientific Assembly
(, August 21-27, 2021. The session
accepts both oral and poster contributions, and you can submit your
abstract by *April 15, 2021*. For your convenience, the scope of the
session can be found appended below.

We are looking forward to meeting you online during the Assembly.

Kind regards,

Myrto Pirli

Session scope:

Insight into cryospheric dynamics is of utmost importance to a wide
spectrum of scientific fields, from glaciology and polar climate
research to projections of sea level rise. During the last decade, a
growing volume of literature has been establishing cryoseismology as a
very appropriate interdisciplinary tool to answer questions on diverse
dynamic processes in the cryosphere, from ice-shelf crevassing and
iceberg detachment, to glacier surging, basal stick-slip and tidally
induced grounding-line migration, as well as phenomena related to
subglacial water flow. In addition, techniques such as seismic
interferometry and H/V spectral ratios of ambient noise have been
emerging as potent tools to gain knowledge on the structure of shallow
ice layers and changes in the permafrost. We invite contributions on all
topics of cryoseismological research, covering both the Arctic and
Antarctica, as well as mountain glaciers in temperate climates.
