GeoQ #8

The December issue of the quarterly newsletter of the European Geosciences Union is now published online. Following on from the release of the first part of the Fifth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in September, we are dedicating this issue of GeoQ to climate. We feature a piece, previously published on the EGU blog, GeoLog, summarising the results of the Working Group I report, but the focus of this newsletter goes beyond the IPCC. The articles section includes features on research on the mechanisms that govern the Earth’s ice ages, on soil organic carbon and climate change and on Atlantic meridional overturning circulation during the Holocene. It also features an article on the history of climate change discovery. Other highlights include a piece from the European Commission Directorate-General for Climate Action and news about a new collaboration between the EGU, UNESCO and ESA to bring Geosciences Information For Teachers (GIFT) workshops to Africa.

You can download the full newsletter as a single (interactive) PDF, or follow the Table of Contents links below for the PDFs of each individual section.
