New Advances in Geophysics meeting

The Future of Passive Seismic Acquisition

The Royal Society of Edinburgh is hosting a meeting sponsored by the British Geophysical Association on ‘The Future of Passive Seismic Acquisition’ on November 12-13, 2018.

Early-bird registration deadline: 15th October
Abstract submission deadline: 12th October

The last 20-30 years has seen significant developments in the deployment and analysis of passive seismic data.  This ranges from microseismic monitoring on faults, volcanoes or for energy production, to large scale imaging of the crust and mantle to understand tectonic/geodynamic processes. Recently there has been a move towards collecting large data sets, both spatially and temporally. This includes an increasing use of low power, easy to deploy land sensors, developments in distributed acoustic sensing in fibre optics and marine acquisition through ocean bottom seismometers or autonomous drones. This meeting is a chance to learn from past experiences and think about what the next 20-30 years will bring. Sessions and panel discussions will mix academic and industrial participants to generate a blend of new ideas.  

Invited speakers: Michel Campillo, John Collins, Fiona Darbyshire, Yann Hello, John Hole, Heiner Igel, Hitoshi Kawakatsu, Mike Kendall, Charlotte Krawczyk, Sjoerd de Ridder, Catherine Rychert, Hanneke Paulssen, Brandon Schmandt and Spahr Webb. 

Industry speakers/exhibitors: Avalon Science Ltd, Digos Potsdam GmbH, Guralp, Kinemetrics, K. U. M. GmbH, Nanometrics, Osean, Tokyo Sokushin Co., Ltd, Trimble Inc.
