Special topics

S1 Amphibious Geophysics

The transition zone between land and water (amphibious zone) is a particularly interesting area for many scientific questions, e.g. in archaeology, coastal protection, or coastal dynamics, but it is a challenge from a geophysical and surveying point of view. Therefore, in this session we want to address the challenges of amphibious geophysics, which cover a wide variety of geophysical methods such as magnetics, geoelectrics, georadar, seismics and hydroacoustics.


S2 Ambient noise

Long unrecognized as a source of interference in seismic signals, the ubiquitous seismic noise became an important signal source in all areas of seismics/seismology. Applications range from non-destructive material testing on the centimeter scale to global seismology on the kilometer scale. In addition to the evaluation of the noise, for example in structure exploration, the description of the sources is an important field of research. We welcome contributions on seismic noise on all scales.


S3 Earth Observation from Satellites

Satellite measurements have opened new possibilities in Earth observations. We invite contributions that address space-borne observation, alone or in combination with ground-based measurements, of the Solid Earth system and its dynamic processes. Contributions from modelling studies to novel methods are welcome.
