Scope Infrasound and associated wave studies are recently focused on coupling waves with long-distant and vertical propagation characteristics. Such kinds of waves, having with coupling process between the atmosphere and the surface of ground and ocean, are linked with elastic waves in lithosphere and oceanic sphere, as well as to atmospheric regions up to the upper atmosphere, playing a role of generating many kinds of wavelike turbulence in thermosphere. Moreover, whole on the globe, these waves excited depending on the latitude regions, as well as on the environmental regions, such as snow ice, desert, rainforest, mountain, ocean, etc., have their own characteristics. These waves can be excited by large-scale geophysical events like volcanic eruptions, tsunami, thunderstorms, etc. as well as artificial explosions, propagating with long distance. In this session, we would like to discuss such "coupling geophysics" by using many new or well-known investigated data and simulations of infrasound and associated low frequency waves. It can combine multiple spheres in geophysics and bring a brand-new scope of geophysics. Your contributions from many regions are welcome!
