Division on Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems

President: Lara Pajewski (gi@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Francesco Soldovieri (soldovieri.f@irea.cnr.it)

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

As part of EGU’s Natural Hazards and Risk Reduction Month, this newsletter issue checks in on the state of progress of the 2015–2030 Sendai Framework and how different countries have approached this landmark agreement. This issue also highlights blogs from each of this month’s featured EGU divisions: Hydrological Sciences, Natural Hazards, and Seismology, plus a GeoLog about spatial seismic hazard in western Indonesia.

Upcoming events include a day-long ERC webinar hosted by EGU and the Union’s Autumn Election 2020 for the EGU Treasurer, for which members will receive an e-ballot in the mail next week.

The Loupe also features a new webinar about ERC grants, a new statement by EGU, and a call for new ECS members of the Education Committee. Be sure to apply by 2 November!
