Dear Colleagues                    (*** Apologies for cross-posting ***),

We are pleased to announce Session G3.5/GD2.7/SM 2.18 Monitoring and modelling of geodynamics and crustal deformation: progress during 37 years of the WEGENER initiative (co-organized)


at the EGU General Assembly 2018 on Sunday, 8 April – Friday, 13 April 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

Session G3.5/GD2.7/SM 2.18 Monitoring and modelling of geodynamics and crustal deformation: progress during 37 years of the WEGENER initiative (co-organized):


The processes of the Earth deformation can be revealed by means of diverse methods of investigations. The seasonal distribution of surface loading, the earthquake cycle, volcanic processes (eruptions, dike intrusions, induced seismic activity), near surface motions (landslides, induced and natural superficial subsidence/collapse).

Recently, major earthquakes in Sumatra (2004, Mw 9.2), Maule (2010, Mw 8.8), Haiti (2010, Mw 7.1) and Tohoku (2011, Mw 9.0) have exposed the impact of such events and the need for better understanding of Earth deformation processes. These events illustrate the geodynamic complexities that include subduction zones and giant earthquakes, continental faults and depth versus surface deformation, the seismic cycle and seismotectonics of active zones, magmatism processes and crustal deformation. The observation techniques, methods and data analysis need the Earth observation systems and reference frames that include remote sensing and surface and satellite gravity observations

This session is conducted in the frame of the WEGENER consortium*) and we seek submissions that emphasize multidisciplinary studies of Earth deformation using geodetic techniques (GPS, InSAR, LiDAR, space/air/terrestrial gravity, ground-based geodetic observations), complementary tectonic and geophysical observations, and modeling approaches focusing on the European-Mediterranean and Northern African regions. We also welcome contributions discussing the realization and outcomes of Supersites in the frame of the GEO initiative, as well as fundamental studies of natural and induced physical phenomena, strategies to develop early warning and rapid response systems.

This session is co-organized by Geodesy (G), Geodynamics (GD) and Seismology (SM) We expect considerable and diverse interest in the topic and we’re looking forward to an enjoyable and exciting session.


Please consider submitting an abstract for this Geodesy session.  Check the meeting website for updates, and complete submission policies: https://egu2018.eu/home.html


Please note – the deadline for abstracts is 10 January 2018 (13:00 CET), so please plan accordingly and submit your abstract soon.


This session will be scheduled by EGU as either oral or poster or both, depending on the number and quality of the abstracts submitted.  Authors will be informed in March regarding the date and format (oral or poster) of their




We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering this opportunity to share your research and applications insights.


Please forgive us if you receive multiple postings as we are seeking to distribute this announcement broadly to reach as many disciplines as appropriate.
