Division on Ocean Sciences (OS)

President: Karen Heywood, os@egu.eu
Deputy President: Johan van der Molen, johan.vandermolen@cefas.co.uk

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.

This month, the EGU announced the first AOGS–EGU joint conference, on New Dimensions for Natural Hazards in Asia. The meeting is taking place from 4 to 8 February 2018 in the Philippines and the deadline for abstract submission is 31 August. Another important deadline to keep in mind is 15 June: you have until then to nominate deserving scientists for all EGU 2018 medals and awards. We encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages. Finally, we invite you to look back to the EGU 2017 General Assembly by watching the highlights of the conference on video or some of the web streamed sessions, such as medal lectures and great debates. If you haven’t yet, please help us make the 2018 meeting even better by submitting your feedback by the end of today (31 May).
