Soil is the interface between the crust and atmosphere, and is the basis of life on earth.  The impact of Soil Science to the society has probably never been as high as it is currently. The importance of soils in the Earth System must make us, the soil scientists, more noticeable at the EGU.

The aim of the SSS is to coordinate the EGU scientific programme on Soil Science and related activities. The SSS contributes actively with EGU by promoting scientific interchange and dissemination of activity carried out by members.

 

Living in the Soil

The comic living in the soil has been edited by the Regional Galician Council of Culture (Galicia, Spain) and the Galician section of the Spanish Society of Soil Science and coordinated by Dr. Montserrat Diaz Raviña (IIAG-CSIC). It has been published with the aim of making young people aware of soil and the need to protect it. On the occasion of the International Year of Soils (2015), the original Galician version has been adapted and re-edited in Spanish, English and Catalan.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

Thank you to everyone who submitted an abstract to the EGU 2017 General Assembly! With over 17,500 abstracts received, and an improved set up to accommodate the high number of expected participants, the conference promises to be the largest and most exciting to date. We look forward to welcoming everyone in Vienna on 23-28 April!

We would also like to draw your attention to a couple of deadlines we have coming up. The first regards a job opportunity at the EGU Executive Office: if you'd like to help us bridge the gap between science and policymaking, consider applying for our vacancy by 5 February. Until 15 February you can also apply to receive one of EGU's Public Engagement Grants to develop a project that aims to raise awareness of geosciences outside the scientific community. For the chance to win a free registration to next year's General Assembly, consider applying to the Communicate Your Science Video Competition (by 26 February, for early career scientists) or to the EGU Photo Competition (by 1 March).

Last but not the least, 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, make sure to apply for funding by 28 February. For those interested in helping further the EGU education programme, apply to be part of the EGU Committee on Education.
