New Session held at the EGU General Assembly,Vienna, 22 – 27 April 2012

Volker Rath
 Dear Colleagues,
    This is to draw your attention to a new session held at next year's EGU General Assembly.  As also written in the description below,
this is a highly interdisciplinary session, welcoming contributions from all areas related to subsurface temperature observations. It will
present an outstanding opportunity for the interchange of experiences, methods, and results, both from an experimental and a theoretical/numerical viewpoint. Please consider to submit to this session!

From the web page:

Temperature observations in the subsurface: contributions to climate sciences, soil sciences, permafrost, glaciology, hydrology, and heat flow studies

Temperature measurements in the subsurface contribute to many areas of earth sciences on a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. This highly interdisciplinary session provides space for all topics relevant to the investigation of heat transport in(to) the subsurface. It is open for all contributions on the thermal signatures of fluid flow, paleoclimate, and other relevant processes.

Possible themes for this session would be related to the discrimination, and quantitative description of the different processes involved in subsurface heat transport, as the use of subsurface temperature measurements in soil sciences, hydrology, permafrost and glaciology, and heat flow studies. Both, experimental as well as theoretical/numerical studies will be appreciated. Particularly welcome are investigations related to (1) past and present surface temperature variations and environmental changes, and their interaction with the subsurface temperature field; (2) investigations into the mechanism of ground-air temperature coupling including effects of precipitation, soil moisture, snow cover, freeze/thaw cycling; (3) ground surface temperature reconstructions from borehole temperature profiles; (4) the possible role of borehole temperatures for the numerical simulation of past climate, and the validation of its models at decadal and longer scales.

Please circulate this information to anybody who could be interested to attend. Hoping that we will be able so set up a strong and interesting
session next year,

Jeanette Noetzli, J Fidel Gonzalez Rouco, Jan Safanda & Volker Rath (convenors)
