What a GA

The Euroepan Geoscience Union General Assembly has come and gone, lets hope that this was a great experience to all especially those attending for first time. This year EGU saw as many as 12,000+ scientists attending from over 100 countries. Scientific contributions consisted of 4,800+ oral, 9,500+ poster, and 483 PICO presentations.

Here is a small gallery showing the various aspects of EGU (through the lens of a mobile phone):
