Dear Geodesy colleagues,

Please consider to submit an abstract to AGU2020 Geodesy session G002, Geodetic Measurements of the Earth's Elastic Response to Surface Mass Variability, or forward this email to your colleagues who may be interested. Abstract submission deadline this year is 29 July, 2020.

Session Description:
The Earth’s crust elastic response to surface mass variations results in deformation and stress perturbations that are resolvable with geodetic measurements and advanced modeling techniques. Modern geodetic tools, such as GNSS, InSAR, and gravimetry, measure the effect of lithosphere deformation with high-accuracy. This session intends to incorporate geodesy’s applications to hydrology, cryosphere, seismology, and solid-Earth studies. We invite presentations that bridge geodetic observations of surface deformation using loading theory and crustal stress changes from mass movement on land, ocean, cryosphere, and atmosphere. Topics include, but are not limit to, studies that calculate surface deformation with numerical models, acquire independent loading data, and compare with the geodetic measurements. In particular we welcome presentations using geodetic measurements at the local- to global-scale that investigate surface loading processes, thermoelastic models, decipher elastic and non-elastic signals, improve Earth structure models, or present correlations between surface deformation and seismic activity inferred stress changes in crust.
