Earlier this month, the EGU, through its Seismology and Natural Hazards Divisions, issued an information briefing about the recent Nepal earthquakes. The text, written for the broad geoscience community, summarises the earthquake processes, highlights new research directions for hazards in the region, and provides resources for post-earthquake hazard mapping and risk reduction.

In other news, the EGU has launched the call for proposals for EGU co-sponsored meetings. Further, the Union has signed a joint agreement with AGU, AOGS and JpGU, aimed at strengthening future collaboration to better serve the geoscience community around the world. Last but not the least, on 18 June, our journals received their new impact factors, while Earth Surface Dynamics was indexed in Web of Science for the first time (following Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems indexed last month).
