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

June marked an important chapter in the EGU history. The Union has launched a new vision and strategy for the next five years and announced a move of the EGU Executive Office to new premises. We have also announced two job vacancies at the office, for a Head of Media, Communications & Outreach and for a Chief Strategy & Finance Officer. The deadline for applications is 14 July.

We have also opened a call for financial support to organise EGU training schools and conferences this month. Finally, we opened the EGU General Assembly 2020 call for sessions. You can submit your sessions ideas by 15 August (Union Symposia and Great Debates) or 5 September (other session types).
