What is EMSEV 2012 in Japan?

EMSEV is an IUGG Working Group supported by IAGA, IASPEI and IAVCEI. Its focuses are the observation and explanation of the various kinds of electromagnetic phenomena associated with seismic and volcanic activities particularly from a multi-disciplinary point of view. In 2012, we will organize the next biennial symposium "EMSEV 2012" in Central Japan at the beginning of October.

Session I:
Electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic phenomena associated with active processes: earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, active fault movements, landslides, geothermal activities etc.

Session II:
Electromagnetic imaging based on land and space monitoring techniques

Session III*:
Pre-seismic, co-seismic and post-seismic phenomena related to the Lithosphere-Atmosphere- Ionosphere Coupling using multi-parametric observations to ensure reliable interpretations

Session IV:
Generation mechanisms of electromagnetic signals related to active processes: Theoretical and laboratory studies

Session V:
Seismic, Geodetic and Electromagnetic studies related to the off Tohoku M9 Earthquake and Tsunami on March 11, 2011

* The LOC will organize Session III as Oleg Molchanov memorial session. Oleg Molchanov was a pioneer of Seismo-Electromagnetic studies on earthquakes who died in 2011 at the age of 71. After the devastating Kobe EQ in Japan, Science and Technology Agency Japan (STA) initiated the Earthquake Frontier Research Program in 1996. He joined this project with Prof. M. Hayakawa and made great contributions.

All of the posters should be placed on the specified board at the poster hall from 9:00 October 1 to 15:00 October 2. Poster presenters should be in front of their posters during the specified poster core time 1 or 2.
