Division on Cryospheric Sciences (CR)

President: Olaf Eisen, cr@egu.eu
Deputy President: Carleen Tijm-Reijmer, c.h.tijm-reijmer@uu.nl

The Cryosphere are those parts of the Earth and other planetary bodies that are subject to prolonged periods of temperatures below the freezing point of water. These include glaciers, frozen ground, sea ice, snow and ice. One of the main aims of the EGU Division on Cryospheric Sciences is to facilitate the exchange of information within the science community. It does so by organizing series of sessions at the annual EGU assembly, and through the publishing of the open-access journal `The Cryosphere’. The division awards the Louis Agassiz medal for outstanding contributions to the science of the cryosphere.

This month, the EGU blog GeoLog featured an interview with EGU President Jonathan Bamber, where he spoke about his plans for the Union, how scientists can stand up for science and how the Union plans to foster the involvement of early career scientists (ECS) in its activities. If you, too, would like to help shape the future of the EGU and contribute to the work it does for the scientific community, feel free to nominate yourself for one of the roles available in the EGU Council by 15 September.

Another important date coming up is September 8: the deadline for submission of sessions and short courses ideas for the EGU 2018 General Assembly. If interdisciplinarity is important to you and your work, know that you can also co-organise your session as an interdisciplinary event.
