Workshop on the Earth's Hum
The aim of the workshop is to discuss recent developments in the observation and explanation of the Earth's Hum. An international group of researchers will be brought together to provide insights on possible excitation mechanisms as well as improved observation strategies. The workshop is open to researchers at any level interested in the topic. [more]
