Are you ready to vote for your favourite Division blog of 2023?

Our EGU blogging team has had a fantastic 2023 posting across our official blog, GeoLog and the division blogs. With the Near Year now officially upon us, you may know that we like to pause and reflect on our blogging efforts of the year gone by! Much like previous years, we saw yet again an impressive and insightful collection of blog posts throughout 2023.

Most of our readers appreciate EGU’s blogs for their informative yet accessible style, and for our bloggers ability to take complex geoscience content and make it fun and relevant to the reader. If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved in, we encourage you to get in touch with your Division blog editors, or email
