I would like to draw your attention to the EGU Galileo conference (http://www.egu.eu/meetings/galileo-conferences/):

“From Process to Signal – Advancing Environmental Seismology” 

taking place in Ohlstadt, Bavaria, Germany from 6-9 June 2017.

The workshop is orgnized by a team from the GFZ Potsdam (Jens Turowski, Michael Dietze, and Anne Schöpa), and aims to discuss the current use of seismic techniques in the study of the Earth’s surface and the processes that act upon it, a field that is collectively refered to as ‘Environmental Seismology’. In a series of keynote lectures, the state of the art will be surveyed. Presentations by attendees will address the breadth and novelties of current research. Individual break-out groups will discuss pressing scientific issues in small workshops. All scientists are invited who currently use seismic techniques to study geomorphological processes, the cryosphere, the weather, the shallow subsurface and other phenomena at or near the Earth’s surface. Also, those who are interested in the potential of seismic techniques and would like to link with the pioneering community or who wish to use seismic approaches in future are more than welcome to join.

Abstract submission is open from now until March 13, 2017. Please see the EnviroSeis website for details about the slightly different flavour of abstract handling and workshop activities.

Find out more about the event from Jens Turowski (turowski@gfz-potsdam.de), and feel free do distribute the flyer.

 

Jan Blöthe is currently working as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Geomorphology and Environmental Systems working group at the University of Bonn, Germany. His primary research interests are in the field of sediment dynamics, natural hazards and geomorphometry. During his PhD he worked on valley fills and large landslides in the Himalayas.
