(interactive) PDF!

The March issue of the quarterly newsletter of the European Geosciences Union, which marks the first anniversary of GeoQ, is now published online. Of highlight in this edition are the Articles section, featuring a piece on "Hunting monsters: The search for earthquake ruptures in the Himalayas" and an interview with soil-scientists Jorge Mataix-Solera, a letter from the EGU Awards Committee Chair Alberto Montanari in EGU Voice, and a very interesting Education article featuring micropalaeontology activities for the classroom. The two pieces in the External News section are also of mention: one introduces the Future Earth initiative and the other a science policy programme from the other side of the Atlantic.

Note that we are continuing the survey on GeoQ in this edition: please tell us who you are and what you like and dislike about this publication by completing our very short questionnaire – it won’t take more than a few minutes! Thank you in advance for helping us improve the EGU newsletter.

You can download the full newsletter as a single (interactive) PDF, or follow the Table of Contents links below for the PDFs of each individual section.
