Session description: S28 - Applications and developments in ambient noise 
In the absence of earthquakes and other strong seismic signals, the Earth 
surface is not static but constantly vibrating due to many continuous noise 
sources such as ocean waves, storms and anthropic activities, generating the 
so-called ambient seismic noise. Ambient seismic noise has proven to be a 
valuable tool for imaging the earth at different scales via surface and body 
wave tomographies. The continuity and reproducibility of ambient noise 
correlations, make them an excellent candidate for the monitoring of crustal 
properties, which has found applications ranging from volcano monitoring, 
dynamic recovery processes of earthquakes to civil engineering. The energy 
source for most applications is the microseism. The microseism sources are 
closely related to ocean wave energy coupling with the Earth's motion and have 
today broad applications, among which the investigation on 
atmosphere-hydrosphere-cryosphere-solid earth interactions, to make also 
inferences on climate changes.  In this session, we welcome contributions 
focused on ambient noise seismology. We invite contributions concerning 
multi-scale applications of seismic noise interferometry, such as imaging 
structure and monitoring subsurface changes. We are also enthusiastic to 
receive studies on the sources of ambient seismic noise (i.e. microseisms, hum, 
microbaroms), their generation processes, and their applications on the 
investigation of atmosphere-hydrosphere-cryosphere-solid earth interactions. 
This extends also to methodological and more theoretical approaches (i.e. role 
of scattering, alternative processing techniques).
