A new model can now be used in an early warning system to predict landslides for people living in high-risk areas, enabling them to evacuate before it’s too late. The study is published on 27 July in the European Geosciences Union journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences.
The EGU, in close collaboration with the Secretariat of the European Parliament Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development, is providing an EGU member with the opportunity to visit Brussels and work alongside a Member of the European Parliament (MEP).
New research published today in the European Geosciences Union journal Biogeosciences reveals the relationship between extinction magnitude and climate change during major marine and terrestrial animal crises.
The number of snow cover days in the Alps could halve by the end of the century due to higher temperatures if greenhouse gas emissions remain high, according to new research published today in the European Geosciences Union journal Hydrology and Earth Sciences.
The European Geosciences Union and our publishing partner Copernicus are announcing sweeping new changes, that will give our authors the ability to make vital alterations to their names in previously published scientific literature. This will allow researchers to change their name for several reasons, from a need by transgender authors to change their first name to affirm their gender, to a change in marital status, to cultural name changes, or any other reason.
Firedrake is a state-of-the-art system that automatically generates highly optimised code for simulating finite-element (FE) problems in geophysical fluid dynamics. It creates a separation of concerns between employing the FE method and implementing it. Here, we demonstrate the applicability and benefits of Firedrake for simulating geodynamical flows, with a focus on the slow creeping motion of Earth’s mantle over geological timescales, which is ultimately the engine driving our dynamic Earth.
We assess the climatic and societal impact of the 852/3 CE Alaska Mount Churchill eruption using environmental reconstructions, historical records and climate simulations. The eruption is associated with significant Northern Hemisphere summer cooling, despite having only a moderate sulfate-based climate forcing potential; however, evidence of a widespread societal response is lacking. We discuss the difficulties of confirming volcanic impacts of a single eruption even when it is precisely dated.
Recent drought events caused enormous damage in Europe. We therefore questioned the existence and effect of current drought management strategies on the actual impacts and how drought is perceived by relevant stakeholders. Over 700 participants from 28 European countries provided insights into drought hazard and impact perception and current management strategies. The study concludes with an urgent need to collectively combat drought risk via a European macro-level drought governance approach.
Researchers and those in academia sooner or later come across the scientific editor: the gatekeeper of scientific journals. The editor plays a key role in the publishing process, working closely with authors and reviewers to implement an unbiased peer-review process that upholds rigorous standards. They are often experienced scientists and experts in their field who ensure that the published research is scientifically sound, of high quality, and of interest to the journal audience. But have you ever wondered what it …
Lots of people think that the challenging things in academia all relate to the actual science, the nitty gritty coding, the paper writing, developing methodologies etc. However, I’m sure that you’ll be reassured by the fact that many of us are stuck with even the simplest of things. Thats why Alice has come to us asking: How can I stay in touch with my supervisor? Dear Alice, It sounds so simple, right? They’re your supervisor, their one and only job …
We may not often think about it, but climate in Antarctica can be very different depending on where we are exactly (do not expect palm trees though!). Winds play a big role in shaping these differences, which are reflected – among other things! – on sea ice. But how are these winds related to the large-scale atmospheric circulation, and are we having an impact on them? Dear readers, please meet one of the main players in the Antarctic atmosphere: the …
