Topics: SSA Meetings
We would like to announce the “Frontiers in Marine Seismology” session to be held at SSA 2022 from 19-23 April in Bellevue, Washington (just outside of Seattle). The session description is as follows:

Understanding of geohazards and Earth structure continues to be advanced with the development and use of marine technologies and new analysis techniques. Whether investigating the formation and evolution of structures in ocean basins, refining the controls on and potential impact of megathrust earthquake slip behavior along subduction zones, or tracking the seismicity along oceanic transform faults, mid-ocean ridges, seafloor or island volcanoes, and undersea landslides, marine geophysical observations will be key to answering the science questions prioritized by the community in reports like “A Vision for NSF Earth Sciences 2020-2030: Earth in Time” (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2020).

This session encourages abstract submissions related to all aspects of marine seismology, particularly in the collection and use of observations through ocean bottom seismographs to record natural and controlled sources. Presentations are also encouraged on related marine geophysical topics such as marine electromagnetic instrumentation and imaging, seafloor geodesy, moored and unmoored hydroacoustic sensors, and use of underwater fiber optics, as well as on integration of offshore and onshore technologies and techniques.

Abstracts are due 12 January 2022 at 5pm PT, and can be submitted here:

Just a reminder of this travel support opportunity for marine seismology community members participating in the 2022 SSA Annual Meeting. Please note that applications will now be accepted through January 12, 2022.


We are excited to announce a travel support opportunity for marine seismology community members to participate in the 2022 Seismological Society of America Annual Meeting to be held April 19-23 in Bellevue, Washington ( This travel support opportunity is made possible by the National Science Foundation through award #OCE-193951. Applications will be reviewed by members of the Marine Seismology Symposium organizing committee, with preference given to student and early career researchers. Funding support is restricted to costs for domestic US travel only. Presentations in the "Frontiers in Marine Seismology" session are encouraged, but it is not a requirement for receiving travel support.

Application form:

***Applications for this travel support will be accepted through January 12, 2022***

If you have any questions or comments about this application, the review process, reimbursement guidelines, or other related topics, please get in touch with Kasey Aderhold at kasey<at> Please note that this is separate from the SSA Travel Grant opportunity.

Hope to see you in Bellevue in 2022!
