Traditional seismology primarily uses seismometer data, i.e. measurements of translational motion. This session aims at sharing recent developments in seismology using observables other than these classic seismometer measurements, such as infrasound, gravimeter data, strain, tilt or rotational motion.

Accurate measurements of these additional components are relevant in many fields of Earth and related sciences: seismic instrumentation, earthquake physics, rock mechanics, seismic tomography, earthquake engineering, detection of gravitational waves, observing and analysing Earth’s free oscillations, geophysical exploration and others.

We invite contributions using these new observables, either independently or combined with seismometer data as well as on the new instrumental developments.
