The Sassy Scientist – Funding the Abyss

The Sassy Scientist – Funding the Abyss

Has the ocean temperature risen again? Are you tired of dressing like an onion to adapt to 15 degrees of change in a day? Here we have a cooling question. Peter asks: If you had infinite funding, what would you do? Dear Peter, If I had infinite funding, you’d find me setting up my new office at the bottom of the Mariana Trench – because if you’re going big, might as well go seven miles deep, ...[Read More]

CrowdWater: A Citizen Science Revolution for Flood Prediction with Machine Learning

CrowdWater: A Citizen Science Revolution for Flood Prediction with Machine Learning

CrowdWater is a citizen science project that enables the collection and sharing of water level data on streams and rivers worldwide using virtual scales. As part of the project, a CrowdWater (CW) mobile application was developed that allows users to take and upload geo-referenced photos of water bodies, which are then processed and stored in a global database. CW data provides valuable information ...[Read More]

Geotandem: The Red Planet, often recognized as a dead planet, is not quite dead after all, at least geodynamically speaking

Geotandem: The Red Planet, often recognized as a dead planet, is not quite dead after all, at least geodynamically speaking

Welcome to the first of its kind, the Geotandem 01! A collaborative series between EGU divisions. Interdisciplinarity is intrinsic to Geosciences, so we want to showcase how researchers approach the same topics from different but also complementing perspectives. In each edition, we will bring you a high-interest topic for the community seen from the eyes of diverse disciplines. Today, the Tectonic ...[Read More]

Did you know that a lack of Arctic shipping regulation has detrimental environmental effects?

Did you know that a lack of Arctic shipping regulation has detrimental environmental effects?

Increased maritime transport in the Arctic, facilitated by the reduction in sea ice cover, is causing tremendous harm to an already vulnerable part of the world. Insufficient regulation of Arctic shipping has detrimental environmental effects on a global scale. These effects include, e.g. underwater noise pollution, oil spill risk and threats to the global climate. But did you know what role regul ...[Read More]

Expanding the picture: What does a geodesist look like?

Expanding the picture: What does a geodesist look like?

Think of a geodesist. What names come up in you? What do they look like? Do they have glasses? Is their hair short or long, grey or blonde? What’s their country of origin? Can you imagine them wearing a dress? And how come so many of them run marathons? I’m joking, but hopefully you get the picture. Geodesists, especially the ones in power positions, are not the most diverse bunch of people. Since ...[Read More]

Meet our EGU-GMPV Science officers – take 2

As we approach the EGU General Assembly, we remember that there are a number of people working hard to ensure that sessions on our favourite topics are secured. This also ensures that topics of interest to as wide a range of scientists as possible are covered. This is why the GMPV Division has representatives from the various fields of geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology and volcanology. Last time ...[Read More]
