European Geosciences Union General Assembly, 02 - 07 May 2010 in Vienna, Austria

17.03.2010
The European Geosciences Union is happy to announce the EGU General Assembly from 02 - 07 May 2010 in Vienna, Austria. Geohazards (the Haiti and Chile earthquakes), the climate change debate, ocean acidification, biosphere-atmosphere interaction, water, renewable resources and low-carbon energy options, and life on early Earth are among this year's central issues.

The EGU General Assembly 2010 will bring together 10,000 geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. Major General Assembly 2010 topics and debates are related to our natural environment and its current threats: geohazards such as wildfires, weather and climate. Spatial and temporal patterns of wildfires, models of desertification and degradation, and the realities of damage control in forest landscapes will be covered in several sessions.

Media Registration

Science writers and public information officers of all nations are welcome to attend this conference and to register in advance by 12 April 2010 at the very latest by completing and returning the "Press-Pre-Registration Form", which you will find at the attached website addresses. Press registration at the meeting at the opening hours of the conference office is also possible. Press registration is free-of-charge.

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
