Winter sun in the Ross Sea, by Célia Julia Sapart. Find geoscience images (and upload yours!) at


This month we are highlighting two new studies published in EGU journals. One, published in The Cryosphere, shows how much sea level would rise following the collapse of two Antarctic ice shelves. The other, featured in Biogeosciences, shows that oxygen loss in the coastal Baltic Sea over the past century is unprecedented in the last 1500 years. You can read the press releases for both studies on the EGU website.

Also this month, we have opened the call for candidates for EGU Treasurer: if you'd like to nominate yourself or propose a candidate, you can do so by 15 September.

Finally, if you'd like to apply for financial support from the EGU to organise a meeting, make sure to submit an application by 15 August. This is also the deadline to submit proposals for Union Symposia and Great Debates at the EGU 2019 General Assembly. The deadline for scientific sessions is 6 September.
