The Division on Climate: Past, Present & Future is one of the larger divisions of the European Geosciences Union. It pools from many disciplines and consequently has many co-organized and co-listed sessions with other divisions at the general assembly. The division is very interdisciplinary and covers climate variations on all time scales. CL includes the study of any kind of climate archive from rocks to ocean cores, speleothems, ice cores, chronicles, to instrumental records to name a few. Besides observations, climate modeling on all time scales from the deep past to the future are areas covered by the division. Any aspect of the climate system falls into the realm of the division e.g. atmosphere, ocean, biosphere, cryosphere, and geology. Themes focus on the climate on Earth but may also expand other planets or the sun.

With the abstract deadline at 13th January, we would like to highlight some of the fantastic sessions that are offered in the climate division in 2021. Due to the large amount of offered sessions, we focus in this overview on EDI sessions. EDI stands for equality, diversity, and inclusion and the EDI logo highlights sessions that include conveners from multiple countries and institutes, different career stages, and more than one form of gender identity. More info can be found here. …
For our seasonal greetings this year, we would like to present the outreach team of the climate division. Our team has grown after the last EGU assembly, and this was highly visible in our increased number of blog postings throughout the year. We published 14 post in total! The team is responsible for writing and editing blog posts as well as finding motivated guest writers. We try to address all different topics of past, present and future climate to give …
