Dear colleagues,

We would like to highlight the following special session at the 2008
AGU Joint Assembly, 27-30 May 2008 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The abstract deadline is 5 March 2008, and you can find more
information at the meeting web site,


or by contacting either of us.

Sincerely yours,

Greg Anderson and Mike Jackson

Faster: Collection, distribution and applications of
low-latency data in Earth science
Session G04

Rapid access to data from a variety of geophysical instruments is
increasingly important for a wide range of scientific applications,
including regional seismic networks and rapid hazard assessments,
tsunami and volcano warning, and space and atmospheric physics.
Reliable collection and distribution of data with low latency is a
significant challenge for today's networks, especially those operating
in harsh environments and with limited funding.  Fortunately, the
growth in consumer and business demand for low-cost Internet access
(in even remote areas) and other similar advances have made it easier
to provide the needed data.  We intend this session to bring together
network and data managers, technologists, and researchers with an
interest in low-latency data, and we particularly welcome those
presentations that define scientific needs or new solutions that
can foster further growth in this exciting area.
