1. 13:30-13:45
TITLE: On 2017 eruption of Nishinoshima volcano
SUMMARY: We report the initial stage of Nishinoshima eruption started on
April 18, 2017.

2. 13:45-14:00
TITLE: Preliminary results from shear wave splitting and receiver functions recorded
on the HOBITSS array in an area of slow slip offshore New Zealand

SUMMARY: The HOBITSS ocean bottom seismometer deployment recorded earthquakes
from May 2014 through June 2015, including background activity and also seismicity
associated with a slow slip event in October 2014. We present preliminary results
of shear wave splitting on this deployment and on surrounding stations. We also
present preliminary results of receiver function analysis on teleseismic arrivals
on the same stations, which recorded strong sediment reverberations.

3. 14:00-14:15
