Division on Solar-Terrestrial Sciences

President: Olga Malandraki (st@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Margit Haberreiter (margit.haberreiter@pmodwrc.ch)

The ST Division considers all aspects of solar and heliospheric physics, specifically the solar-terrestrial connection. It covers the physical processes occurring on the Sun, in the solar wind, as well as in Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere. Solar activity (e.g. coronal mass ejections, solar flares, solar energetic particle events) and the response of the near-Earth space environment to these solar phenomena are studied on a wide-range of temporal and spatial scales. Data analysis and interpretation of space-borne and ground-based data, as well as theoretical studies and different modeling techniques are used to better our understanding of how our local star defines the neighborhood that we live in.

ST-ECS networking campfire event

The EGU Solar–Terrestrial physics (ST) division’s early-career scientist (ECS) team is organising a so-called Campfire event to gather the community together before EGU22 and promote networking among ST-ECSs. The event will be held on Zoom and will take place on Friday 18 March 2022 at 15:00 CET, for a duration of one hour. We will make use of breakout rooms to facilitate discussions in smaller groups on topics of interest to ECSs. You can register for the meeting here. Agenda …

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

In the April issue of The Loupe, Earth day is in the spotlight amidst the looming climate change crisis. Find out how EGU and fourteen other geoscience organisations around the world have committed to create a just and sustainable future for the planet. As EGU’s Early Career Scientist (ECS) Representative, Anita Di Chiara explains how ECS can get more involved in EGU and the scientific community.

A few weeks to go for EGU22, which takes place from 23-27 May 2022! Registration for on-site participation has now closed, however you can still register to join us virtually till 27 May 2022.

This issue also highlights some of the key science for policy sessions at EGU22, and includes the latest Journal Watch and GeoRoundup of April EGU journal highlights.
