S012:
Geophysical Acoustics





Session ID#: 27054

Session Description:
Pressure waves in the atmosphere carry a wide range of information of
geophysical interest. A variety of natural sources (volcanoes, fluvial
features, storms, bolides, etc.) and human activities (chemical and
nuclear explosions, supersonic aircraft, wind turbines, etc.) produce
these waves, and properties of their sources can be determined by
acoustic analysis. Further, acoustic waves experience path effects
that can be inverted to reveal atmospheric temperature and wind
structure. Finally, breaking acoustic waves may be a significant mode
of energy flux between regions of the atmosphere.

We invite submissions that explore acoustic wavefields and sources on
Earth and other planets. Presentations describing instrumentation, analytical
techniques, monitoring, and emerging opportunities are welcome.
