Fuego Eruption Plume Meets Cloud Bed, by Rick Thomas. Find geoscience images (and upload yours!) at


With the EGU General Assembly just over a week away, we have a number of updates on the meeting, happening in Vienna from 7–12 April. We have announced that Former Italian Prime Minister and European Commissioner Mario Monti and Former Italian Parliamentarian Ilaria Capua will be at the EGU meeting, participating in a conversation with geoscientists on ‘Science, Politics and European (dis)integration’. We have also recently announced a number of measures to reduce the environmental impact of the conference: we encourage all participants to offset their carbon footprint from travelling to Vienna and to bring their own coffee cup and water bottle to the meeting, to reduce the number of disposable items used. Follow the links under the ‘General Assembly’ section below for more information about the EGU meeting.

This month, we have also announced that we are accepting nominations for EGU awards and medals. We encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages.

Stay tuned to next week for an announcement about a new EGU journal!
