Blogs & Social Media
GeoLog is EGU’s official blog. It regularly brings readers information about the Union and its activities, particularly its General Assembly. Guest and opinion posts written by external contributors also have a place on the blog.

EGU Blog Network
The EGU Blog Network complements our official blog, featuring a diverse community of Geoscience bloggers:

The network aims to share accurate information about geoscientific research, in a language understandable not only to fellow scientists but also to the broader public. With a particular focus on European research, the network offers a place for scientists to interact with each other and the Union.
Social Media Presence
Activity on EGU’s social media channels, particularly Facebook and Twitter, increases greatly at the General Assembly and in the months preceding the conference. This is the time when we share updates about the sessions and activities in Vienna - you can follow this activity using this year’s hashtag, #egu2013.
You can find us on:
Using Twitter, we share current news in the Earth, planetary and space sciences from respected sources (such as BBC or NY Times) as well as updates on EGU activities and publications.
Our YouTube page is a one-stop resource for all EGU-related videos: from General Assembly highlights to clips from the Geosciences Information For Teachers (GIFT) workshop. The longer-duration videos, such as web streaming of lectures and press conferences at the General Assembly, are also available on EGU TV.
