Seismic imaging and monitoring of state and dynamics of the cryosphere

The cryosphere, including glaciers, permafrost and ice sheets, plays a significant role in the global climate and responds rapidly to global changes. It is important to image and characterise all components of the cryosphere and to monitor their changes and dynamics in time. Active seismic methods and passive seismological observations have been shown to be powerful approaches for this purpose.
This session gathers cryoseismology researchers involved in broad spectrum of cryosphere imaging and monitoring studies using all forms of seismic waves at different spatial and temporal scales, for both polar and high mountain regions.
We invite submissions concerning case studies, development of survey techniques, theoretical advances in the data processing and combination with other geophysical methods.
The session will cover the following topics:
• Reflection seismic imaging
• Seismic tomography
• Surface waves analysis (MASW)
• Seismic monitoring of glaciers and ice sheets (icequakes, tremors, calving)
• Ambient noise time-lapse monitoring methods including noise interferometry and HVSRs
• Distributed Acoustic sensing (DAS) with fiber optics
