The power of ice, by Romain Schläppy. Find geoscience images (and upload yours!) at


The abstracts are in! Over 16,500 abstracts were submitted to the EGU 2016 General Assembly, more than ever before. With excellent and diverse research being presented in Vienna (17–22 April), it promises to be a great conference. Make sure to register by 17 March for discounted rates.

If this is the first time you are attending Europe's largest geoscience conference, have a look at our first timer's guide to the EGU General Assembly to get your bearings in Vienna. For a chance to get a free registration for next year's conference, submit your pictures to the 2016 Imaggeo Photo Contest. If you are an early career scientist (ECS), you can also enter the Communicate your Science Video Competition.
