Natural seismological source and wave propagation studies allow for the study of fundamental processes and conditions relevant to the state and behavior of glaciers, ice sheets, and other components of the cryosphere. The range of glacial processes recently studied using seismology include basal sliding, subglacial and englacial hydraulics, iceberg calving and collision, the oceanic excitation of elastic and gravity waves, and crevassing. Increasingly, seismographic instrumentation is evolving to make observations in often harsh glacial conditions increasing tractable and informative. We seek contributions that address recent seismological applications to polar and glaciated regions, and welcome the presentation of new scientific results as well as innovative analysis and instrumentation tools in cryoseismology.
