Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences

NP Division at the General Assembly 2020

NP Division at the General Assembly 2020

Each year the European Geosciences Union organizes the largest European geosciences event which is the EGU General Assembly. It usually attracts over than 15000 scientists from all over the world, including both established researchers and early career scientists, who contribute to more than a half of the participants. It consists of several sessions (usually more than 500), covering a wide spectrum of geoscience fields, from the interior of the Earh to the interplanetary medium and planetary environments. The main aim of the General Assembly is to provide a forum where scientists can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The General Assembly consists of disciplinary sessions, dealing with topics covered by each EGU division, Union Symposia and Great Debates, being cutting-edge, current, and of interest to a broad range of the space and geosciences, Medal Lectures, being characterized by talks given by medallists at both Union and Division levels, Short Courses and Outreach Sessions, whose participation is especially encouraged to Early Career Scientists. The EGU General Assembly 2020 will held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 3-8 May 2020.

Here the numbers of the Nonlinear Processes in Geosciences (NP) Division are presented:

53 Sessions organized or co-organized by NP

22 Sessions with NP as lead division

8 Short Courses organized or co-organized by NP

1 Short Course on meeting the NP officers who will present NP research activities

14 Inter- and Transdisciplinary Sessions (ITS) organized or co-organized by NP

3 Inter– and Transdisciplinary Sessions (ITS) led by NP



4 PICO Sessions organized or co-organized by NP

1 PICO Session starting from NP

Moreover, NP also awarded 4 different people in relation to their activities within the nonlinear geosciences:

Valerio Lucarini is the 2020 Lewis Fry Richardson Medal
Ekaterina Didenkulova is the NP Division Outstanding ECS
Elisa Ziegler and Rem-Sophia Mouradi achieved the Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Award

The program of the NP Division at the General Assembly 2020 is very exciting and we should expect a very good and large participation from the geosciences community. We strongly encourage you to submit an abstract to one of our sessions.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions (Stéphane Vannitsem, NP Division President,, Tommaso Alberti, ECS Representative,

I am a researcher at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) in Rome, Italy. My research activity is focused on data analysis and modeling, via dynamical system and statistical mechanics approaches, to understand complexity in geoscience and near-Earth space plasma. My interests cover: - Complexity and chaos in geosciences - Extreme events in geosciences - Sea level variability: transient phenomena, long-term variability and trends - Geo-electromagnetic transient phenomena and effects on electric infrastructures - Turbulence in fluids and plasmas
