Division on Planetary and Solar System Sciences

President: Stephanie C. Werner (ps@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Özgür Karatekin (ozgur.karatekin@oma.be)

The aim of the Planetary & Solar System Sciences Division of the EGU is the promotion of all fields of planetary sciences, ground-based and space mission exploration of the solar system and beyond,  and related models. PS covers papers on both fundamental and applied topics regarding the exploration of the Solar System. The Division, devoted to Science applications in Space, hosts interdisciplinary contributions on the origins and the evolution of the Solar System and the exoplanetary Systems, as well as ideas for future exploration while largely contributing to outreach and educational activities for all audiences.

Workshop for early career scientists!

In the framework of a two days workshop entitled "Space Exploration - Pushing the Frontiers", we will create an exhibition on planetary exploration. The exhibition will travel with the participants to be shown at their university/institution. In groups, we will develop different stations of the exhibition concerning the different planetary bodies, the according space missions, the future plans etc. We imagine the exhibition consisting of posters, videos, multimedia and texts, but there is no limit to the creativity of the participants. Share your knowledge in your area of expertise with other young space scientists, and with laymen, children and colleagues.

Seismo @ school

Seismo @ school

Being a seismologist is not just doing research, it is also sharing experience and teaching the next generation. As early career scientists, we are used to share ‘our science’ during open days and career days at university. Another peculiar moment for Science outreach is the National Science week, where researchers can set up experiments and exhibitions to draw the attention of the general public (both children and adults). During this week, you’d probably get the chance to see the building …


4th TIDES Advanced Training School

4th TIDES Advanced Training School

The 4th TIDES Advanced Training School was held in Prague, Czech Republic, from 2nd to 6th July 2018. If you missed it, take a look at Michaela and Eric’s short report: It’s the first Sunday of July. It could have been a calm sunny noon in Vienna, but that’s not my plan for today, I’ve to catch a train in 45 minutes! I check the room, take my luggage, ready to start my journey. The next week will be pretty …

The new ECS-reps team of the Seismology Division!

At the EGU General Assembly 2018, a new team of Seismology Early Career Scientist representatives was introduced and installed. With more than half of the EGU membership consisting of Early Career Scientists, the team represent an important part of the community and want to be approachable for all. They will be responsible for the Seismology blog, organize the yearly short course “Seismology for non-seismologists” at the General Assembly, and organize outreach and career events. Next to that, they plan to …

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

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.
