The scientific programme for the EGU 2016 General Assembly is out tomorrow, and it includes a variety of new sessions as well as old favourites. From Interdisciplinary Events to geoscience Great Debates – a format now being adopted by other geoscience unions – the programme has plenty of interesting science to offer.

You can also find interesting research in the EGU journals. This month there's a study on screening truffles for radioactivity, published in Biogeosciences, and one on using temperature-sensing waders and smartphones to collect hydrological data on Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems, among others.
