Division on Earth Magnetism & Rock Physics (EMRP)

President: Angelo De Santis, emrp@egu.eu
Deputy President: Pedro F. Silva, pmfsilva@fc.ul.pt
Deputy President: Sergio Vinciguerra, sv127@leicester.ac.uk

The Earth is a dynamical planet: its interiors’ electro-magnetism and physical properties contribute to this exciting property of our planet. The Earth Magnetism & Rock Physics (EMRP) Division addresses the experimental, theoretical and modeling approaches of fundamental solid-Earth and magneto-hydrodynamic processes that extend from the Earth’s surface to the core. A continuous demand for a better understanding of the magneto-hydrodynamic and physical processes responsible for the Earth’s magnetic field spatial and temporal variability is required. Theoretical and experimental aspects of rock physics, environmental magnetism, magnetic anomalies and plate tectonic reconstructions, magnetic polarity reversals, petrophysical assessment throughout physical, mechanical and magnetic properties, electrical conductivity and transport properties of the Earth’s crust and mantle are some of the key topics of research of our ‘living planet’ to which this division is dedicated.

The division awards the Louis Néel and the Petrus Peregrinus medals for outstanding contributions to geomagnetism, palaeomagnetism and rock physics.

In line with EGU and the other divisions, EMRP is actively trying to engage with early career scientists (ECS). The ECS representative of EMRP division is working with the other divisions ECS representatives to improve visibility of ECS concerns, as well as, help out with any ECS related issues (e.g. first attendance at EGU General Assembly and how to organize sessions). Check out the ECS section for more information (http://www.egu.eu/ecs/) or contact directly the ECS representative of EMRP division (see at http://www.egu.eu/emrp/structure/).

In early and mid-September, strong earthquakes hit Mexico causing widespread damage and casualties. On the EGU blog, GeoLog, we rounded up the available scientific information on the earthquakes, including commentary by EGU seismologists. Meanwhile, in Bali, Indonesia, authorities have evacuated areas around Agung Volcano, leading to the displacement of over 75,000 people. On the new Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology blog, GMPV Division President Mike Burton writes about the ongoing threat of an eruption at Agung.

This week, with the deadline for session proposals now closed, the EGU Programme Committee is meeting to finalise the session programme for the EGU 2018 General Assembly. Very soon, you’ll be able to start submitting abstracts to the meeting. If you’d like to apply for funding to attend the General Assembly, beware that you’ll have to submit your abstract by 1 December. If you know a school teacher interested in learning more about Earth sciences directly from researchers, make sure to let them know about the next Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop, taking place at the EGU 2018 General Assembly.
