Dear Colleague,

We would like to draw your attention to the approaching deadline (*15
April 2021*) to submit your abstract to session *S9: Cryoseismology*, to
be held during the virtual *IAGA-IASPEI 2021 Joint Scientific Assembly*
(, August 21-27, 2021.

The session accepts oral and poster presentations on a wide array of
cryoseismological topics. For your convenience, please find the scope
appended below.

We have the pleasure of announcing the following invited presentations:
- "Improved early-warning of subglacial floods based on seismological
data", by Prof. Dr. Eva Eibl (University of Potsdam, Germany)
- "Swell-Triggered Seismicity at the Near-Front Damage Zone of the Ross
Ice Shelf", by Prof. Richard Aster (Colorado State University, USA)

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

With kind regards,

Myrto Pirli

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.
