Division on Atmospheric Sciences (AS)
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.
A position as an Associate Research Fellow for characterisation of aerosol-radiation-interactions and representation of aerosols in numerical weather prediction and climate models at University of Exeter is open.
Deadline for applications is 19 July 2015.

(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 email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2014/session/14023) and the European Nowcasting Conference.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter
Earlier this month, the EGU, through its Seismology and Natural Hazards Divisions, issued an information briefing about the recent Nepal earthquakes. The text, written for the broad geoscience community, summarises the earthquake processes, highlights new research directions for hazards in the region, and provides resources for post-earthquake hazard mapping and risk reduction.
In other news, the EGU has launched the call for proposals for EGU co-sponsored meetings. Further, the Union has signed a joint agreement with AGU, AOGS and JpGU, aimed at strengthening future collaboration to better serve the geoscience community around the world. Last but not the least, on 18 June, our journals received their new impact factors, while Earth Surface Dynamics was indexed in Web of Science for the first time (following Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems indexed last month).
