20th International Symposium on Geodynamics and Earth Tides
We are pleased to announce that the 20th International Symposium on Geodynamics and Earth Tides (G-ETS) will take place in Strasbourg (France) from August 25 to August 30, 2024. The G-ETS 2024 will be held under the umbrella of the IAG (International Association of Geodesy) and, in particular, through the IAG Sub-Commission 3.1 (Earth Tides and Geodynamics) and International Geodynamics and Earth Tide Service.
THE GEODYNAMICS AND EARTH TIDES SYMPOSIUM
The G-ETS addresses the entire range of tidal phenomena and dynamics of the Earth, both on theoretical as well as on observational levels. The G-ETS focuses on Earth tides and non-tidal (atmospheric, oceanic and hydrological) loadings, Earth's time-variable rotation, and geodetic monitoring of reservoirs and volcanoes. Accent is also put on geodetic monitoring of surface deformation and mass redistributions sensed by various space techniques (GNSS, GRACE and GRACE-Follow-On, InSAR, etc.) as well as to innovative techniques and instruments (for instance cold-atom gravimeters) and their applications to monitoring the Earth's dynamics.
PRELIMINARY SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM AND SESSIONS
In keeping with previous G-ETSs, the following sessions are proposed:
- 1. Tides and non-tidal loading.
- 2. Geodesy for hazard monitoring (seismo- and volcano-geodesy, etc.).
- 3. Monitoring of subsurface fluids (hydro-geodesy, hydro-gravimetry, geothermal
- monitoring, etc.).
- 4. New technologies, software and innovative concepts (cold-atom gravimetry,
- gradiometry, etc.).
- 5. Time variable gravity and mass redistribution (glacial isostatic adjustment, ice mass
- changes, ocean dynamics, etc.).
- 6. Temporal variations of the Earth’s rotation.
The last day of the Symposium (Friday, August 30, 2024), will be dedicated to IAG business meetings.
CALL FOR ORAL PRESENTATION AND POSTERS
The website for abstract submissions and registration will open in January 2024. A second circular will be sent in January 2024 to announce all deadlines and further details. Registration fees are expected with reduced rates for early bird, students, IAG members and retired scientists.
PUBLICATIONS IN SPECIAL ISSUES
Contributors to the symposium will be encouraged to submit a manuscript to two special issues, one in Pure and Applied Geophysics, the other one in Geodesy and Geodynamics. All submitted papers will undergo a review process. The deadline for full paper submission will be announced later.
The Symposium will take place at the University of Strasbourg, on the campus of Esplanade, easily accessible by tram or on foot (30 min) from Strasbourg railway station. Strasbourg railway station is reachable from Strasbourg-Entzheim airport by train. Exact location within the University of Strasbourg, Esplanade campus, will be provided later.
Strasbourg is a touristic city where you can find a broad range of hotels, bed-and-breakfasts and other accommodations, within walking distance or by tramway from the University of Strasbourg, Esplanade campus.
