Science is not immune to fraud: How a Microbiologist-turned-Integrity Consultant spots scientific misconduct

Science is not immune to fraud: How a Microbiologist-turned-Integrity Consultant spots scientific misconduct

Elisabeth Bik is as brave as they come. She has been threatened personally and professionally by people she’s never met, only because she dares to critique some of the most widely read and published scientific papers in the world. The Dutch microbiologist discovered her unique skill of spotting – manually, with her naked eye – plagiarized text and fabricated images that otherwise go unnoticed in p ...[Read More]

How Ancient Egyptian Decline Synced With Hydrological Change….And How They Survived

How Ancient Egyptian Decline Synced With Hydrological Change….And How They Survived

Cairo’s survival was, is, and will be dependent on the flow of the Nile. Since the city was founded in 10th century CE the Nile’s scouring waters have left behind untouched ground onto which the city has spilled and grown.

However, we, at the EGU Cryosphere Blog, thought it might be us ...[Read More]

GeoPolicy: Don’t Look Up – could better science advice have saved the planet?

Note: Spoilers Ahead! If you haven’t already seen it, go and watch Don’t Look Up – and then come back to this blog to find out what the scientists in the film could have done to better connect and communicate with the policymakers involved!

GeoPolicy: What’s new in 2022?

GeoPolicy: What’s new in 2022?

2021 was yet another year of uncertainty, with many changes and disruptions to our plans, activities, and goals. EGU’s science for policy programme was no exception to this with the Science for Policy Pairing Scheme and annual Science for Policy Event taking a back seat. We hope that 2022 will not only bring new activities but also rekindle those that were put on hold as a result of the pandemic. ...[Read More]
