Sciences Division is one of the largest divisions in the
European Geosciences Union. The research areas covered by
division extend from the large-scale dynamical/meteorological
processes and systems in the atmosphere (like cyclones and
global atmosphere circulation) to the small scale turbulent
mixing, they cover the time frame from centuries (in
connection with climate research) to seconds (in the context
of fast chemistry). Atmospheric Sciences include studies of
the atmosphere composition, aerosol and
cloud physics, gas-particles interactions and chemical
reaction kinetics studied in the labs.
- Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal
The 2020 Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal is awarded to
Michael J. Prather for groundbreaking developments in chemistry-transport modelling, establishing a theoretical framework to elucidate the role of reactive species in climate forcing, and improving environmental policy.
- Division Outstanding Early Career Scientist Award
The 2020 Division Outstanding Early Career Scientist Award is awarded to
Meng Gao for original contributions to the understanding of haze pollution formation in highly polluted regions and its interactions with climate.

Extreme weather events routinely have detrimental socio-economic impacts around the globe. In fact, weather-related events make up over 90% of natural disasters worldwide . In the new millennium, the frequency of many extreme weather events such as droughts and high temperatures, has systematically exceeded the levels seen in the 1980s and 1990s , and anthropogenic climate change …
It looks like a spike, orange against the blue sky, sticking out the green ocean of the Amazon forest: Standing 325 m tall, the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory (ATTO) is the highest construction in South America. This tower celebrates its 5th anniversary this year, while the ATTO research site, located ~150 km northeast of Manaus, Brazil, has been in operation for 10 years. During the past 5 years, I regularly visited the ATTO site, making atmospheric measurements for my PhD. …
