47th Nordic Seismology Seminar held in Reykjavík
Volcano seismology, magma tracking, early warning
The 47th Nordic Seismology Seminar will be held at Grand Hotel Reykjavík between the 11th and 13th October 2016. Around 40 seismologists and scientists of related fields from Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy and the UK will participate and present their work.
The seminar covers a wide range of topics related to seismological research, such as automatic detection of earthquakes, improving methodology in data analysis, hazard assessment and engineering seismology, as well as structural studies of the earth's crust and upper mantle.
As this year's seminar takes place in Iceland, a special focus will also be on volcano seismology, magma tracking in the crust and eruption early warning.
Collaboration between the Nordic countries in seismological research has a long tradition. The seminar is held annually and rotates between the Nordic countries. This year, it is organized by the Icelandic Meteorological Office. The seminar strengthens Nordic cooperation and several joint research projects have arisen from past seminars.
