Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract to the AGU session NH010: "Ionospheric and Atmospheric Monitoring of Natural Hazards: Existing Terrestrial and Potential Planetary Applications ». The deadline for submission is August, 3.

The description of the session is below:
Natural hazards, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, have always been significant threats to humans. While it still seems difficult to predict such events, the challenge now is to monitor them in real and quasi-real time, and to issue potential warnings. Besides “traditional” instruments of detection (seismometers, underwater pressure sensors, gas emission detectors, etc.), the atmospheric, ionospheric and electromagnetic variations following natural hazards can potentially be used for the monitoring and detection of impending hazards in real-time. Recent development of ground-based multi-instrumental networks, as well as new satellite missions, has opened new and innovative ways for detecting such events in-space. In addition, recent progress in modeling of atmospheric/ionospheric perturbations due to natural hazards promises new methods applicable for other planets.

We solicit observational, theoretical and modeling contributions on detection and monitoring of hazards of natural and anthropogenic origins, including from atmosphere and ionosphere. Studies on precursory signals are also welcome.
