Division on Solar-Terrestrial Sciences

President: Olga Malandraki (
Deputy President: Margit Haberreiter (

The ST Division considers all aspects of solar and heliospheric physics, specifically the solar-terrestrial connection. It covers the physical processes occurring on the Sun, in the solar wind, as well as in Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere. Solar activity (e.g. coronal mass ejections, solar flares, solar energetic particle events) and the response of the near-Earth space environment to these solar phenomena are studied on a wide-range of temporal and spatial scales. Data analysis and interpretation of space-borne and ground-based data, as well as theoretical studies and different modeling techniques are used to better our understanding of how our local star defines the neighborhood that we live in.

The 2021 Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Early Career Scientists is awarded to Mateja Dumbović for her innovative contributions to solar and space-weather physics, in particular, regarding the modelling and observational studies of Forbush decreases, CME propagation, and geo-effectivity.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

In the December issue of The Loupe we learn about the vital importance of mountain glaciers with Harry Zekollari in this month’s special webinar Vanishing Glaciers and seak to ECS Cryosphere Division blogger Larissa van der Laan about her work on glaciers and how she uses science-art in her career as a researcher and artist.

You can also watch the free recording of our special webinar about Digitalk:online (geo)science communication, available now on our YouTube channel.

Don’t forget to submit your abstract for EGU22, which is still intended to be held as a hybrid event 3 – 8 April 2022! Find out more here as well as information about the registration fees and submit your abstract by 12 January 2022 at 13.00 CET.

In addition this issue also shares the latest Journal Watch and GeoRoundup of December EGU journal highlights.
