EGU 2019 is coming...


It's almost time for the annual EGU General Assembly Conference of the European Geosciences Union. The meeting will run from 7- 11 April in Vienna, Austria, and promises to bring together over 14,000 scientists from all over the world, of which more than half are early career scientists.


The meeting’s sessions, typically over 500, cover a wide range of topics, including volcanology, planetary exploration, the Earth’s internal structure and atmosphere, climate, as well as energy and resources. Each annual General Assembly typically has around 4500 oral presentations, over 10,000 posters, and around 1000 PICO presentations.


Aside from disciplinary sessions, dealing with the topics covered by each scientific division, the meeting also features Union-wide sessions such as Great Debates, Union Symposia (including the EGU Awards Ceremony), Medal Lectures, Short Courses and Education and Outreach Sessions (such as the Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop, GIFT), to name a few.


INTAROS is delighted to be hosting a special session on "Evaluation, exploitation and enhancement of Arctic observing systems across disciplines.

Conveners: Roberta Pirazzini  | Co-conveners: Andreas P. Ahlstrøm , Agnieszka Beszczynska-Möller , Mathias Göckede , Stein Sandven.
This session aims at bringing together multidisciplinary studies that address the current state of Arctic observing systems, including strategies to improve them in the future. We invite contributions covering atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and terrestrial spheres, or combinations thereof, by use of remote sensing, in situ observation technologies, and modelling. This session will be supported by the EU-H2020 project INTAROS, and welcomes contributions from other pan-Arctic networks (e.g. FRAM, INTERACT, GTN-P, NEON, ICOS, SIOS, IASOA, AOOS), multi-disciplinary programmes (e.g. ABoVE, NGEE Arctic, Arctic Ocean 2018, YOPP, MOSAIC, Legacy of Nansen) or databases.


The session will comprise of six oral presentations and a poster exhibition.
