Dear Colleagues,

we kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session *S016
Observing Wave Field Gradients in Seismology – Applications,
Instrumentation and Theory* (see the session description below).

Though this year AGU Fall meeting will be partly virtual and partly in
person, our session will be fully virtual.

Please note that the abstract submission deadline is *4 August at 23:59
EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.*

We welcome invited contributions from Yara Rossi (ETH Zurich) and Jack
Muir (Caltech).

Looking forward to your contributions

Felix Bernauer, Eileen Marin, Eva P.S. Eibl and David Sollberger


Session description:

Recent advances in seismic instrumentation have made direct observation
of the complete seismic wave field possible, including the spatial
gradients of the wave field, rotation and strain. Collocated
observations of translation, strain and rotation open new applications
in various disciplines such as seismic exploration, volcanology,
glaciology, ocean bottom seismology, earthquake engineering and
planetary exploration as well as geodesy and gravitational wave detection.

We invite contributions on any recent development in the fields of
applications, instrumentation, and theory for observing seismic ground
rotation, strain and translation. These may include - but are not
restricted to -alternative technologies for seismometers (e.g., optical
technologies), fiber-optic technologies, such as fiber-optic gyroscopes
or distributed acoustic sensing, high-frequency GPS, and array based
methods. We strongly encourage contributions on data analysis
techniques, instrument performance testing and experimental field studies.
