Division on Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems (GI)

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.

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.
