EGU 2018 Environmental Seismology session GM2.3/CR2.6/GI3.15/GMPV10.3/HS11.18/NH4.6/SM 1.04/SSS13.22

Anne Schöpa
Dear colleagues, 

After a very successful first round (thanks to everyone who contributed to the session at EGU 2017), we would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the EGU 2018 session on Environmental Seismology. 

EGU General Assembly 2018 that will take place in Vienna from 08–13 Apr 2018. 


* SESSION:
GM2.3/CR2.6/GI3.15/GMPV10.3/HS11.18/NH4.6/SM 1.04/SSS13.22 
Environmental Seismology: 
Deciphering Earth’s surface processes with seismic methods (co-organized)
Convener: Anne Schöpa  Co-Conveners: Wei-An Chao, Velio Coviello, Florent Gimbert, Andrea Manconi 


* TRAVEL SUPPORT: 
If you want to apply for travel support you must submit your abstract by Friday, 1 December 2017


* ABSTRACT SUBMISSION:
The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is Wednesday, 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET.


* SESSION DESCRIPTION:
Seismic techniques are becoming widely used to detect and quantitatively characterise a wide variety of natural processes occurring at the Earth’s surface. These processes include mass movements such as landslides, rock falls, debris flows and lahars; glacial phenomena such as icequakes, glacier calving/serac falls, glacier melt and supra- to sub-glacial hydrology; snow avalanches; water storage and water dynamics phenomena such as water table changes, river flow turbulence and fluvial sediment transport. Where other methods often provide limited spatial and temporal coverage, seismic observations allow recovering sequences of events with high temporal resolution and over large areas. These observational capabilities allow establishing connections with meteorological drivers, and give unprecedented insights on the underlying physics of the various Earth’s surface processes as well as on their interactions (chains of events). These capabilities are also of first interest for real time hazards monitoring and early warning purposes. In particular, seismic monitoring techniques can provide relevant information on the dynamics of flows and unstable slopes, and thus allow for the identification of precursory patterns of hazardous events and timely warning.

This session aims at bringing together scientists who use seismic methods to study Earth surface dynamics. We invite contributions from the field of geomorphology, cryospheric sciences, seismology, natural hazards, volcanology, soil system sciences and hydrology. Theoretical, field based and experimental approaches are highly welcome.



We look forward to receiving your contribution.
