The EGU Press Office has a round-up of European Geosciences Union General Assembly items in the news media from around Europe on their webpage.
Here’s a quick round-up of coverage of the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2010 from around the blogosphere (the usual disclaimer that these are not views of the EGU, more letting people know what’s out there).
From the EGU GA 2010 Blog Roll, Dave Pettley blogged about several landslide related sessions, including the Sergei Soloviev Medal lecture by Dave Keefer. Musing’s of a Life Long Scholar covers talks and has a comparison of the EGU GA and AGU Fall Meeting. Felipe Rosas covered sessions along with some points of interest around Vienna. The YES Network Blog (YES=Young Earth Scientist) contains reflections that the YES Network were involved in. The Environmental Research Web Blog picked up on newsworthy items such as the Iceland eruption and monitoring Artic Sea Ice.
From those not on the Blog Roll, Alistair McKinstry’s Aon Scéal blog talked about sessions of interest to him. James Annan of James’ Empty Blog mentions how although he’s not at the EGU GA 2010, he can access more of it online than before.
Do you know of a mention of the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2010 on a blog that isn’t included above? If so let Jennifer Holden know, or post it in the comments.
New this year at EGU GA 2010 is the closing session by Jan Smits on The 30th anniversary of the discovery of the iridium anomaly at the Cretaceous Paleogene boundary: The state of the Chicxulub impact-extinction theory in Room D from 17:30 to 18:30.
Some brief stats on EGU GA 2010: 4,431 oral and 9,370 poster presentations in 594 sessions with more than 10,000 scientists in attendance.
In the context of recent airspace closures the poster session for US7 Eyjafjallajökull – eruption, plume, and consequences was held on Wednesday 5th May at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly. Poster topics included effects of the ash cloud (including impact on air quality of the airspace closure), monitoring information, whether Spain could be a transport hub for Europe (based on paleo-ash records) and investigating ash particles that fell to the ground.
There are still oral sessions and splinter meetings associated with the special Union Session on Thursday at the EGU GA 2010.
