Division on Atmospheric Sciences (AS)

President: Oksana Tarasova,

Atmospheric Sciences Division is one of the largest divisions in the European Geosciences Union. The research areas covered by division extend from the large-scale dynamical/meteorological processes and systems in the atmosphere (like cyclones and global atmosphere circulation) to the small scale turbulent mixing, they cover the time frame from centuries (in connection with climate research) to seconds (in the context of fast chemistry). Atmospheric Sciences include studies of the atmosphere composition, aerosol and cloud physics, gas-particles interactions and chemical reaction kinetics studied in the labs.

European Nowcasting Conference 2014

The "European Nowcasting Conference" will be held in Vienna, austria, from 29-30 April 2014.

This conference is organized in the frame of EUMETNET (European Meteorological Network) which includes an activity dedicated to Nowcasting. This activity started in January 2013, is coordinated by ZAMG and counts 23 members plus additional contributors.

It aims to provide a comprehensive overview of
(1) nowcasting systems and techniques in use,
(2) observations and NWP,
(3) verification and societal/economic impacts and
(4) application and user aspects.

During the European Nowcasting Conference four sessions will be devoted to these four aspects of Nowcasting. In each session there will be room for discussions and also in the end of the conference.

The deadline for the receipt of title of presentation and the according number of session (1, 2, 3 or 4) is 28 February 2014. Please send the information via e-mail to and

The time available for 1 presentation is 15 minutes.

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) will take place in Vienna in the same week, but there will be no overlap in time between the EGU Nowcasting session (AS1.3; see and the European Nowcasting Conference.

Research Awards for Young Scientists and Engineers 2014

The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization with its headquarters in Vienna is the international organization setting up the global verification system foreseen under the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), which is the Treaty banning any nuclear weapon test explosion or any other nuclear explosions. The Treaty provides for a global verification regime, including the International Monitoring System network of 321 stations worldwide, a communication system, an International Data Centre and on-site inspections to monitor compliance.
We seek to recruit a highly qualified candidate for the following position in the Commission’s Provisional Technical Secretariat:
