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.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
