Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to our session IG11: "Integrated Analysis of 
Geoscience Observations from the Floor to Surface of the Ocean” at the 2018 AOGS 
meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, on 4-8 June 2018.

In this session, we invite contributions on the precise estimation of seafloor 
crustal deformation by using sonic wave signals in order to share discussion with 
ocean physicists.

Session Description:
Sea bottom pressure data contains various components such as crustal deformation, 
ocean oscillations, tidal variability, atmospheric changes, and instrumental drift. 
The same is true for acoustic ranging data collected during sea-floor geodetic 
measurements. To date, seismologists and geodesists have generally treated the 
physical oceanographic processes as noise, and ocean physicists have considered 
crustal deformation as noise. Studies from a wide range of different disciplines 
from the sea level down to seafloor are necessary for characterizing, identifying, 
and interpreting the sources of these superposed signals. In this session, we 
welcome contributions focusing on our understanding of the nature of the signals and 
noise observed in sea-floor seismology, geodesy, ocean physics, meteorology, tsunami 
technology, and the complementary relationships between them.
