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/).
The 2018 Louis Néel Medal is awarded to
Harry W. Green II for his seminal contributions to the mechanism of deep-focus earthquakes, rock rheology, mantle dynamics and the dramatic improvement of a solid pressure-medium apparatus.
- Petrus Peregrinus Medal
The 2018 Petrus Peregrinus Medal is awarded to
Mioara Mandea for defining the nature of the geomagnetic field, particularly abrupt changes in secular variation known as geomagnetic jerks, and for advancing observatory and satellite data collection and analysis.
- Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Award
The 2018 Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Award is awarded to
Marco M. Scuderi for his exceptional seminal contributions to our understanding of fault mechanics and earthquake physics via important fundamental advances and high-quality papers on a broad range of problems on rock physics.
- Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards
The 2018 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards is awarded to
Katarzyna Dudzisz Rock magnetism of the Lower Triassic sedimentary rocks from Spitsbergen
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. EGU members are eligible to submit
an abstract to the General Assembly and enjoy substantially reduced meeting
registration rates, among other benefits.
