Abstract

Large atmospheric acoustic sources such as: volcanic eruptions, bolides (terminating meteorite explosions), the ocean surface, chemical and nuclear detonations generate copious quantities of infrasound (low frequency sound) that can propagate several thousand kilometres. Using the appropriate recording equipment, infrasound from various sources can be detected and used to infer certain knowledge about the source mechanism or atmosphere through which it travelled. Each year an Infrasound Technology Workshop is organised to provide researchers from various international institutions the opportunity to meet with colleagues and present current research results in an informal setting. The Infrasound Technology Workshop 2004 was hosted by Geoscience Australia in Hobart, Tasmania from 29 November to 3 December 2004. The Workshop was organised in cooperation with the Provisional Technical Secretariat of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) in Vienna. Listed below is the complete list of abstracts submitted to the general infrasound session in author's surname order. 28 abstracts were submitted for this workshop. A special Volcano Infrasound session was held at the Workshop, see Geocat #69616 to view abstracts.
