This issue is themed “The Face of the Earth” to match this year’s theme of the EGU General Assembly. More information about the focus of this year’s GA theme is explained by Günter Blöschl and Gert-Jan Reichart , the EGU President and EGU 2014 Programme Committee Chair, respectively: “The theme intends to enhance coherence between disciplines and provide conference participants with a stronger community feeling. It also reflects the fact that the most thrilling research questions are becoming more interdisciplinary“.

This month’s edition focuses on five sub-topics at the EGU2014: Waters of the Earth, Life of the Earth, Atmosphere of the Earth, Rocks of the Earth and Space and the Earth.
