European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2015

12.04 - 17.04.2015
Vienna, Austria

Aims & Scope

The EGU General Assembly 2015 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

This year’s theme will be “A voyage through scales”. The theme will not constrain the topics to be presented at the Assembly, rather it is designed to bring out the similarities between the branches of the geosciences.

Abstracts are welcomed for the PAGES-related sessions below. The deadline is 7 January 2015. Submit your abstract via the EGU website through the session you are interested in.
