About this book

Since the publication of the first volume “Infrasound monitoring for atmospheric studies” published in 2010, significant advances were achieved in the fields of engineering, propagation modelling, and atmospheric remote sensing methods. The global infrasound network, which consists of the International Monitoring Network (IMS) for nuclear test ban verification completed by an increasing number of regional cluster arrays deployed around the globe, has evidenced an unprecedented potential for detecting, locating and characterizing various natural and man-made sources. In recent years, infrasound has evolved into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of geophysics and innovative technical and scientific developments. The advances in innovative ground-based instruments, including infrasound inversions for continuous observations of the stratosphere and mesosphere, provide useful insights into the geophysical source phenomenology and atmospheric processes involved. Systematic investigations into low-frequency infrasound signals and the development of complementary observational platforms point out new insights into the dynamics of the middle atmosphere which play a significant role in both tropospheric weather and climate. This monitoring system also provides continuous relevant information about natural hazards with high societal benefits, like on-going volcanic eruptions, surface earthquakes, meteorites or severe weather. With this new edition, researchers and students benefit from a comprehensive content of both fundamental and applied inter-disciplinary topics.

About the authors

A. Le Pichon (Master’s Degree in Fundamental Physics., Ph.D. in Acoustics). Research Director at Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA) in charge of infrasound research activities on topics relevant to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO): signal processing for automated detection and source location procedures; propagation modeling; and methods for source characterization.
E. Blanc (Research director at CEA). Main research areas are infrasound, gravity waves, and electrodynamical coupling of atmospheric layers. She coordinated international projects concerning infrasound monitoring; space observations of lightning and sprites (LSO and TARANIS); and the Atmospheric dynamics Research InfraStructure in Europe (ARISE) project dedicated to multi-instrument observations of middle atmospheric disturbances and their impacts on weather and climate. 
A. Hauchecorne (Emeritus Research director at CNRS). Main research areas are dynamics and climatology of the middle atmosphere; transport and mixing of ozone and minor constituents in the stratosphere; satellite data analysis and data assimilation in the field of stratospheric chemistry; and lidar techniques for the measurement of stratospheric parameters.
