Celebrating our Oceans!

Taking a look at the vitally important work being done by our members at sea

With both World Oceans Day and the International Day of the Seafarer falling in June, there is no better month to focus on the work of EGU researchers studying the Oceans! Ocean Science Division Early Career Scientist Rep Meriel Bittner shares her research story, as well as some great tips on how to get involved in the Division in this month’s GeoTalks.

June is also Pride Month, so we were very grateful to learn more about the reality of research onboard a research vessel for LGBTQIA+ people from guest blogger Huw Griffiths. As Huw says in his blog, “I am heartened to see the changes that have occurred in [21 years] for LGBTQI+ researchers. I am also well aware that not everyone’s experiences have been as positive as mine and that there is still a long way to go.” To become more involved in helping EGU address issue of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, please get in touch.

Journal Watch

“Despite the tremendous efforts… to improve tidal corrections for altimetry during the last two decades, we still face challenging issues in shelf and coastal seas, as well as in high-latitude oceans, where the accuracy of tidal atlases remains too limited for precise altimetry data processing. Considering this, the FES2014 atlas can be considered as a very significant step forward.”
