About the Seismology Division
The EGU offers an open and widely recognized forum for discussing a wide range of scientific questions and conducting corresponding research. The impact of geosciences to society has probably never been as high as today. Therefore, we pursue broad and open-minded approaches to tackle important research topics, while simultaneously engaging in interdisciplinary collaborations for the benefit of humanity and our planet.
Seismology as a discipline contributes to a large variety of both basic and applied scientific fields, and addresses important topics in the context of both natural resources and natural hazards. The seismology (SM) division at EGU aims to strengthen its inter-disciplinarity and impact by driving the development from static to dynamic geophysical models, by conducting research that spans from acquisition parameters to petrophysical properties, and by supporting the transition from geo-modeling to geo-technical application. Thereby, the SM Division will be increasingly able to make relevant forecasts and provide valuable information to tackle future challenges in securing natural resources and quantifying natural hazards.

The second blog of the SENSOR series shares the experiences of three scientists from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS, Ireland), Dr. Patrick Smith, Dr. Nima Nooshiri, and Dr. Ka Lok Li, who are working on the exciting ‘EUROVOLC’ project to bring the European volcanological community closer together. In March, they flew to Iceland to deploy two seismic arrays near the volcano at Fagradalsfjall and to assist with monitoring efforts for the spectacular eruption occurring in those days. If …
Let’s talk about narcissistic abuse in academia. Many of us have become scientists out of passion and curiosity. Such mental resources are crucial in research, where working hours can get long, experiments can fail, career prospects and funding are scarce. However, even the most passionate may not withstand all of the possible difficulties thrown their way — especially workplace abuse, which may take the most extreme form in narcissistic abuse. Academia is a place of hierarchy – and as such, …

It all started with a tweet from @NatureNews (the news team of Springer Nature): In general, academics welcome Open Access (OA) initiatives; however, this particular tweet has been met with stiff criticism. Unethical profit-seeking, financial gatekeeping, academic elitism, and straining scientific budgets were commonly raised concerns among the many retweets and replies. Unfortunately, these concerns do not specifically apply to the significant OA fees raised by Nature; with the move towards Plan-S compliant publishing, researchers are increasingly more required to …
