Division on Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems

President: Francesco Soldovieri (gi@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Vira Pronenko (pron@isr.lviv.ua)

Opposed to other divisions concentrating on specific fields of geosciences, this division intends to be a forum for developments in instrumentation, technology, methods and data handling used in any field of the various geosciences. By promoting the discussion between specialists from widely diverse fields, advances in instrumentation made in one field might be utilized in other areas also and encourage co-operation, thereby saving separate development work and making new approaches possible, which otherwise might still have to wait for years or even decades.

As nearly every other field of geosciences is related to one or the other instrumentation strategy, many of the GI-sessions are co-organized with sessions from other divisions. Potential contributors to any session are encouraged to evaluate the benefits of a multi-disciplinary discussion versus the specific interest of the own target group.

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.
