Are you ready to vote for your favourite Division blog of 2022?

It’s that time of the year again! With the holiday season around the corner, many of us tend to reflect on the year gone by, with its ups and downs, and lessons and learnings. At EGU, reflection is a year-long process, but we like to end our year on a note of appreciation: for yet another year of impressive blog posts submitted and published across the EGU’s official blog, GeoLog, and our division blogs.

Thank you to all the EGU Division bloggers and editors who have been hard at work producing new informative, and interesting blog posts for our members both inside their Division, and across EGU as a whole. This is your “gentle reminder”: if you are interested in getting involved too (we’re always open to new writing talent!) get in touch with your Division blog editors, or email:
