Dear Colleague,

This is a final reminder to submit your contribution to session *S16*:
"*Seismological studies in Polar Regions and the Cryosphere*", to be
held during the *3rd European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and
Seismology (3ECEES)*, a joint event of the 17th European Conference on
Earthquake Engineering and the *38th General Assembly of the European
Seismological Commission*, to be held in Bucharest, Romania, 4-9
September 2022 (

The session accepts both oral and poster presentations on a wide range
of topics to be found within the appended description below.*

Please note that the *final deadline to submit contributions for
Seismology* is *April 15, 2022*.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Ugo Nanni (University of Oslo,
Norway) will be giving an invited lecture, titled "Imaging of glacier
structures at high-resolution using source localization and ground
motion amplitude with a dense seismic array".

The 3ECEES is currently being planned as an in-person meeting, however,
if the COVID-19 pandemic situation does not allow it, online
participation will be enabled.

Looking forward to meeting you during the Assembly!

With kind regards,

Myrto Pirli

Session scope:

The Polar Regions attract increased scientific, social and economic
attention, holding special significance as regions strained the most by
the consequences of climate change. Unanswered questions on their
tectonic evolution, implications of natural resources and the UN Law of
the Sea Treaty stimulate further interest in them. Seismological
challenges in the Polar Regions comprise the origin and properties of
intraplate seismicity, the mechanisms of ultraslow seafloor spreading,
the structure and dynamics of aseismic ridges and subglacial cratons and
orogens, the role of glacial rebound in seismicity triggering,
seismogenic glacier sliding and iceberg production, and the exploration
for oil and gas. As an imaging tool both in depth and on the surface,
apart from revealing the Earth’s structure, seismology contributes to
studies of paleoclimate and ice and permafrost structure. Seismology has
also proven itself as an effective instrument to study ice dynamics and
monitor glacier-related natural hazards. The rich cryo-seismological
wavefield provides unrivalled insights into the subglacial environment
including rapid basal sliding and hydraulic processes, as well as the
mechanics of iceberg detachment and crevassing.

We invite submissions on seismology in the Polar regions and glaciated
environments with temperate climates. All seismological topics are
welcome, including monitoring and analysis of seismicity (tectonic and
cryogenic) and related hazards, near-surface processes, studies of
recent larger seismic events, seismotectonics and seismic imaging of
crustal and mantle structure. We welcome contributions on recent
research results and their interpretation, and on passive and active
experiments under the special conditions of the polar environment and
mountain glaciers.
