For the first time in 2014 the EGU General Assembly had a theme: The Face of the Earth. A number of special displays and talks were arranged to celebrate the first themed meeting.
Our very own Dan was heavily involved with one aspect of Face of the Earth; along with some colleagues, he manned the Rocks of the Earth stand at the conference center foyer.
No doubt a number of you donated rocks to be displayed throughout the Assembly and you may want to know a little more about the fate of your rocks. In this video, released by EGU, Dan explains the idea behind Rocks of the Earth and what happened to the rocks after the Assembly finished.
