Division on Biogeosciences

President: Giuliana Panieri (bg@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Cornelia Rumpel (cornelia.rumpel@grignon.inra.fr)

The Division on Biogeosciences integrates biological, chemical, and physical sciences dealing with processes and interactions within terrestrial and extraterrestrial realms through the current and earlier geological history of Earth and Solar system in general. Its focus is beyond the established scientific approaches embracing multi- and interdisciplinary understandings of the Biosphere functioning in space and time. In this division, we encourage the participation of scientists across different disciplines, including researches from the field of applied Biogeosciences as well as industrial professionals. Experimental, conceptual, and modelling approaches are welcome.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

Happy holidays from the EGU office! This month we are happy to announce a new addition to the EGU awards and medals portfolio. The Katia and Maurice Krafft Award honours researchers who have shown exceptional efforts in geoscience communication and outreach. Submissions for this and other EGU 2020 awards and medals will be accepted from January until 15 June 2019.

This month we also announced that EGU is contributing EUR 132,000 to help fund over 20 training schools and conferences in 2019, including two Galileo Conferences. We have also launched a call for proposals for EGU members interested in organising Galileo Conferences from March 2020 to February 2021. Apply by 28 February 2019 to receive up to EUR 8000 in financial support, as well as significant organisational support, from the EGU.

Follow the links below for more news, including several updates and information regarding the EGU General Assembly. Remember, the deadline for abstracts is 10 January 13:00 CET. Before then, consider renewing your EGU membership to be part of the largest European geosciences union.
