> Dear Colleagues,

> We would like to bring to your attention the AGU session focused on real-time applications of GPS towards natural hazards mitigation, Real-Time Earthquake Analysis for Disaster Mitigation: Focus on the Pacific Rim.  This session aims to bring together geodesists, seismologists, tsunami modelers, and emergency responders and decision makers, particularly those focused on the western US and greater Pacific Rim, to map out the effective use of burgeoning real-time GPS & GNSS networks in natural hazards mitigation. 
> This year's AGU Fall Meeting, in San Francisco, will be held 15-19 December.  The abstract submission deadline is 06 August, 11:59 pm EDT.

> Session Description:  Currently more than 600 real-time GNSS stations operate throughout the western U.S., established and maintained through multiple projects including EarthScope/PBO, SCIGN, BARD, and PANGA and in collaboration with land surveyors.  A subset are also collocated with seismometers and accelerometers.  Data are increasingly being utilized for real-time applications focused on disaster mitigation, including earthquake early warning, rapid earthquake and tsunami source inversions, GPS meteorology and ionospheric monitoring of space weather events.  This session solicits contributions in the broad discipline of using GNSS for disaster mitigation, particularly those with a focus on the western U.S. or greater Pacific Rim.  The session seeks to cover real-time topics including monitoring, data analysis, rapid source modeling, and distribution of data and products or emergency first responders and decision makers.  Data include primary GNSS data (for e.g., ionospheric tsunami detection and confirmation), GNSS and seismogeodetic displacement waveforms, and tidal and near-shore wave observations.
