Each month we feature specific Divisions of EGU and during the monthly GeoRoundup we will be putting the journals that publish science from those Divisions at the top of the Highlights roundup. For March, the Divisions we are featuring are: Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI), Geodesy (G) and Geosciences Instrumentation and Data Systems (GI). They are served by the journals: Geoscientific Model Development (GMD), Geoscientific Instrumentation, Methods and Data Systems (GI) and Solid Earth (SE).
We use the Minerve virtual reality software to bring undergraduate students to an unusual field trip at 1200 m below sea level in the Lesser Antilles area. This region is located above an active subduction zone responsible for intense volcanic and seismic activity. In particular, we focus on the Roseau submarine fault that ruptured during the Mw 6.3 Les Saintes earthquake and presented a fresh scarp that the students can analyse and map in VR. They compile their results in a GIS project.
