SM1.7/CR11.10/GI-18Challenges of Polar Seismology: Logistics and technology, glacial and tectonic events (co-organized)
|Convener: Trine Dahl-Jensen|
A growing community of both seismologists and glaciologists need to tackle the difficulties of acquiring seismological data under Arctic and Antarctic conditions. Cryo-seismological events, study of core phases to the poles, structural investigations of ice covered polar regions represent a rapidly developing field of research requiring more and more data from the polar regions.
This session will bring together technical and logistical specialists, glaciologists and seismologists working on all aspects of polar seismology: glacial events like calving, rumblings, basal sliding, seismicity of the polar regions, structural studies like Receiver Functions and the special problems the presence of both land and sea ice layer presents to conventional seismological techniques.
