Roundup of EGU Twitter discussion on L’Aquila

On Friday, the EGU hosted a prolific Twitter discussion on the “Consequences of the L’Aquila verdict on the dialogue between science and society” where dozens of participants shared and discussed their thoughts on the verdict,  the scientific uncertainty surrounding earthquakes, and the outcomes of the decision for scientific research, communication, and education. You can now read the full transcript of the discussion on our Storify page.

If you didn’t get the chance to take part on the #eguAquila Twitter event, or would like to continue contributing to the discussion, you can do so on our blog forum.
