Hi All,

Do you have research that could benefit the seismic monitoring community? Would you like to highlight new insights from your seismic network operations?

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the session "Network Seismology: Recent Developments, Challenges and Lessons Learned" at the 2022 Seismological Society of America (SSA) that will be held in person in Bellevue, Washington April 19–23 2022.

Session Description:
Seismic monitoring is not only an essential component of earthquake response but also forms the backbone of a substantial amount of research into seismic hazards, the earthquake process and seismotectonics. As such, it is important to continue to develop monitoring networks' abilities to accurately and rapidly catalog earthquakes to ensure networks best serve the public, government and academic communities. Due to the operational environment of seismic monitoring, seismic networks encounter many unique challenges not seen by the research community. In this session, we highlight the unique observations and challenges of monitoring agencies and look to developments that may improve networks' ability to fulfill their missions. Seismic operation centers play a crucial role in collecting seismic data, generating earthquake products including catalogs, warnings and maps of ground shaking. The purpose of the session is to foster collaboration between network operators, inform the wider seismological community of the interesting and challenging problems within network seismology and look to the future on how to improve monitoring capabilities. This session is not only an opportunity for monitoring agencies to highlight new developments in their capabilities, but we also encourage submissions describing new techniques that would benefit network operations for detecting, locating and characterizing earthquakes, particularly in a near real-time environment.

Abstract deadline: 12 January 2022 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time
