Division on Solar-Terrestrial Sciences (ST)

President: Margit Haberreiter, st@egu.eu
Deputy President: Olga Malandraki, omaland@astro.noa.gr

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.

This month, the EGU blog GeoLog featured an interview with EGU President Jonathan Bamber, where he spoke about his plans for the Union, how scientists can stand up for science and how the Union plans to foster the involvement of early career scientists (ECS) in its activities. If you, too, would like to help shape the future of the EGU and contribute to the work it does for the scientific community, feel free to nominate yourself for one of the roles available in the EGU Council by 15 September.

Another important date coming up is September 8: the deadline for submission of sessions and short courses ideas for the EGU 2018 General Assembly. If interdisciplinarity is important to you and your work, know that you can also co-organise your session as an interdisciplinary event.
