European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2011, Wien, 3. – 8. April 2011

17.02.2011
Online registration for journalists, science writers and public information officers is possible until 18 March 2011. Media registration is also possible onsite during opening hours of the conference office.

The 2011 General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union will take place from 3 April to 8 April in Vienna, Austria.

The EGU General Assembly 2010 will bring together around 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 EGU 2011 topics and debates are related to our natural environment and its current threats: natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes and wildfires.Other topics include energy, resources, weather and climate.

Some of these topics, notably past, present and future of the climate, the oceans and ice sheets, will be discussed during the Union Symposium 1 “A Planet under Pressure” with James Zachos, Eric Rignot and Hervé Le Treut as principal speakers.

Union Symposium 3 focuses on the question “How Science Can Aid Society in Tackling Emerging Risks”.

This year’s Great Debate asks “What can be done about Europe’s alarming dependence on mineral imports?”

We are working to put together an attractive press conference programme. It is still preliminary, but we will probably have briefings about Ocean Acidification, Oxygen Depletion of the Oceans (“triple trouble”), Ice Sheets and Sea Level Rise, Recent Large Earthquakes and Tsunamis, Ocean Dynamics and Oil Spills. We will give out more information as our programme evolves. So stay tuned.

Media Registration

Science writers and public information officers are welcome to attend this conference and to register in advance by 18 March 2011 at the latest by completing and returning the "Press-Pre-Registration Form". Media registration at the meeting during the opening hours of the conference office is also possible. Media registration is free-of-charge.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
