We invite you to submit an abstract to the following cryosphere
session at the AGU Fall Meeting:

ADVANCES IN GLACIER SEISMOLOGY (C06)

The meeting will be held December 13-17 in San Francisco.  The
abstract submission deadline is September 2, 2010.

Session description: During the past decade seismology has rapidly
evolved as a tool for investigating and monitoring dynamic
glaciological processes. Seismic observations have given insights into
subglacial hydrology and outburst floods, basal motion, subglacial bed
properties, iceberg calving and crevassing, glaciogenic ocean waves,
ice shelf flexure, and ice mélange/sikkusak behavior. Although the
full utility of glacier seismology is not yet known, it is clear that
seismology will play an important role in glaciology in the coming
years. We solicit submissions on any topic related to glacier
seismology, including both active- and passive-source seismology.

Co-Sponsors: Seismology (S), Global Environmental Change (GC), Earth
and Planetary Surface Processes (EP)

Conveners:

We look forward to an interesting session on this young yet promising
field of glaciological research.

Best,
Fabian.
