Following the success of this year’s theme, EGU 2015 will also have a theme: A Voyage Through Scales. This is an invitation to contem­plate the Earth’s extraordinary variability extending from milliseconds to its age and from microns to the size of the planet. The range of scales in space, in time – in space-time – is truly mindboggling. Join us on this adventure in Vienna next year!
