Dear Colleagues:

We would like to bring your attention to a Geodesy session at the AGU Joint
Assembly taking place in May 2009 in Toronto, Canada.

G05: 	High-Rate and Low-Latency Data for Earth Science Applications


The abstract deadline is 4 March 2009.   We invite you to submit your
proposal and please pass this message on to your colleagues.

G05: 	High-Rate and Low-Latency Data for Earth Science Applications

Real-time delivery of multi-sensor data is increasingly the standard for
scientific networks across many disciplines. This is particularly true for
socially important Earth science applications such as earthquake early
warning and rapid finite-fault earthquake source models; tsunami and volcano
warning; flood warning and hydrologic modeling; improved short-term weather
models; landslides, debris flows, and other problems in geomorphology;
global environmental change monitoring; and space and atmospheric physics.
As a result, it is increasingly common for terrestrial networks, Earth
observing satellite missions, and now even submarine observatories to
provide low-latency data products, despite significant technical challenges
and restricted funding environments. We intend this session to bring
together network and data managers, technologists, and researchers with an
interest in low-latency data across the Earth sciences. We particularly
welcome those presentations that define scientific needs or new solutions
that can foster further growth in this exciting area.
