The EGU newsletter is a short email publication sent to EGU members on a monthly basis. It informs the Union membership about EGU events and activities, from highlighting papers published in our open access journals to providing news relating to EGU’s scientific divisions and meetings, including the General Assembly.
Since the distribution of a newsletter to all members is enshrined in the Union's by-laws, EGU members are subscribed to receive the monthly news emails when they first acquire their membership. Members can unsubscribe at any moment using the relevant link on the newsletter emails. Other geoscientists, members of the wider public or the media can subscribe online.
If you are an EGU member but have not received the emails, please let us know, and make sure to add email@example.com to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
A paper published in the EGU journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences this month shows that landslides triggered by human activity are on the rise. The conclusion is by a team at the UK's Sheffield University who compiled data on over 4800 fatal landslides during a 13-year period. You can read the press release on the EGU website.
Next month brings two important EGU deadlines. The call for candidates for EGU Treasurer is open until 15 September: we encourage EGU members to nominate themselves or propose a candidate. Before that, on 6 September, is the deadline to submit session proposals and short course ideas to the EGU 2019 General Assembly. We hope you help us shape the conference programme by submitting your proposals.
Readers can access all previous issues of the newsletter from the archive below. Up until the end of 2014, the newsletter was a quarterly magazine and information service (first called The Eggs and then GeoQ).
