Shades of L’Aquila: Italian Geochemists avoid Huge Miscarriage of Justice

On rare occasions I hear about a story that must be told. This story is one of those and I feel that it deserves attention from the broader geoscience community. We have all heard of the L’Aquila verdict against the Italian seismologists concerning the devastating earthquake in 2009. If you haven’t, read these articles by Chris Rowan. At the time the guilty verdict was handed down the ...[Read More]

Welcome to the new Geomorphology Blog

Welcome to the new Geomorphology Blog

…we’re happy you made it to our first post! We felt that the growing Geomorphology community is lacking a unifying platform where posts and documents related to upcoming events, workshops, conferences and other newsworthy information reach many scientists at a time. Thus, with the help of Andreas Lang and Lucy Clarke, we launched this Geomorphology blog and hope that you find it useful and w ...[Read More]

Welcome to the official blog of the geodesy division of the European Geoscience Union. Hosted by the EGU (thanks for that!), the blog is currently being brought into life by the geodesy division presidents and myself. Of course, anyone who has even the slightest curiosity towards geodesy is happily invited to pay us a regular visit. To stigmatize right away, most geodesists will probably be, eithe ...[Read More]
