Division on Ocean Sciences (OS)
The Ocean Sciences Division of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) has the major objective to provide an attractive and productive environment for scientists from Europe and all over the world to gain progress in the various ocean science disciplines and have beneficial interactions with other fields of Geosciences. For that purpose, we organise with the teams of conveners the ocean science part of the program of the scientific conference that his held every year during the EGU General Assembly. We give special attention to topics cross-cutting with those of other divisions. We recognise deserving colleagues in various stages of their careers with our Award program: the division awards the Fritdjof Nansen Medal to mid or full career scientists and the Outstanding Young Scientists Award for younger scientists. We also award prices to outstanding student posters at every general assembly. The division maintains very strong links with the EGU publication committee, and especially with the board of Editors of the open access journal Ocean Science (OS) l. The division also contributes with the EGU Education and Outreach committee to the organisation of relevant topical conferences and summer schools.

In just a couple of days, the meeting programme for the EGU 2017 General Assembly (23–28 April, Vienna) will be published online. If you have an abstract accepted to the meeting, you should receive your letter of schedule soon, too. Before then, make sure you enter the EGU Photo Competition (deadline 1 March) for a chance to win a free registration to next year's General Assembly.
For the first time, the EGU is offering a mentoring programme for novice conference attendees at its annual General Assembly to connect them with more experienced participants. The programme promises to be a rewarding experience for both mentees and mentors, so do consider signing up if you are either an early career scientist (ECS) or would like to mentor first timers!
For those interested in helping further the EGU outreach and ECS programmes, apply to be an ECS representative or be part of the EGU Outreach Committee. If you'd like to organise an EGU Galileo Conference, a meeting addressing a well-focused, cutting-edge topic at the frontier of geosciences research, this is your last chance to apply for funding from the EGU (deadline 28 February).
