EGU23 Tuesday Highlights

EGU23 Tuesday Highlights

Time for the second day of EGU23! Get ready for other amazing sessions during the day! Here are some suggestions, in case you get lost looking at the program:

Let’s start with the session Planetary Volcanism, Tectonics, and Seismology at 8.30 am, co-organized with TS13.1 and PS4, with talks regarding the InSight mission on Mars and the geology of other planets and satellites, as the Geological mapping and structural analysis of the Michelangelo (H-12) quadrangle of Mercury or the location of a new emission source in Io’s Bosphorus Regio.

At 10.45 am, you can discover more about the geochemical, biological, mineralogical, and isotopic information in minerals, during the session Microbial and abiotic minerals: processes and archives of environmental change, co-organized with SSP3.5 and BG6, co-sponsored by IAS.

After the lunch break, visit the PICO spot at 14 of Volcano Seismology: observations and Modelling (co-organized with SM6), with talks on Seismic monitoring of co-eruptive volcanic processes during the 2021 Fagradalsfjall Eruption and the eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano observed at seismic stations in Germany.

Then, after a well-deserved coffee break, you can attend at 16.15 the session on Volcanic hydrothermal alteration and fluid-rock interactions (GMPV5.4), with Drone monitoring of the degassing of fumaroles at Vulcano Island and Lava – substrate interaction and its constraints on perlitic hydration and low-temperature mineralization.

Don’t forget about the Short Course Geology 101 co-organized by GMPV and other divisions at 16.15, aimed to give a good introduction to Geology (to structural geological and petrological principles) to the non-geologists. Geology 101 is part of a quartet with other short courses on ‘Geodynamics 101’, ‘Seismology 101’, and ‘Geodesy 101’. So, keep an eye also on the other short courses if you are interested in having a quick introduction to any of these fields.

Remember also to check for possible pop-up events during the week of the GMPV ECS team! And, if you are an online attendee, check the Online ECS networking event on Gather.Town at 13, where you can find our outgoing GMPV ECS Representative and incoming ECS secretary Giulia Consuma!

And now, enjoy the rest of a – for sure – amazing EGU23 week!
