European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2014
Start Date: April 27, 2014
End Date: May 2, 2014
Organization: European Geosciences Union
Location: Austria
About: The EGU General Assembly 2014 will be held in Vienna, Austria and will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences. The Face of the Earth theme intends to celebrate the diversity of geoscience processes and the great variety of associated forms, across all scales and from the core of the Earth to interplanetary space. This diversity is reflected in the five subtopics of the 2014 meeting: Rocks of the Earth, Waters of the Earth, Life of the Earth, Atmosphere of the Earth, and Space and the Earth.
ECSP kick-off meeting + the EUPORIAS user needs survey
