Thank you to all our volunteers and members!

vEGU21 open access resources will be available soon…

Despite a couple of technical issues the EGU community once again stepped up to bring the very best geoscience research to share with colleagues around the world for this year’s vEGU21 General Assembly. With 18,155 individuals registered from 136 countries presenting 13,643 abstracts, 88% of which had uploaded display materials, our community rallied together to provide fascinating discussions about the latest geoscience discoveries, as well as creating valuable space to discuss other aspects of science and academic culture. As EGU President Helen Glaves said “Despite the new and unexpected challenges many of us faced over the last year, the quality of the presentations during vEGU21 has been outstanding, and a real indication of the commitment and dedication of our members”, a sentiment echoed by Programme Committee Chair, Peter van der Beek in their closing words.

Journal Watch

“Our findings provide unequivocal evidence that the introduction of fluids in the microfractures occurred within the timescale of the thermal perturbation, prompting rapid annealing of damaged wall rock soon after earthquake rupture.”
