The Arctic Gateway

From 19 to 30 April, 2021, the 2021 European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly will be held virtually for the second time. Built on the experience from last year’s “EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online”, the concept of the virtual EGU 2021, or #vEGU2021, has been designed, with the possibility for participants to join remotely from all around the globe. Abstract submission is open until 13 January 2021 at 13:00 CET.

The European Geoscience Union (EGU) is the leading organization for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. EGU fosters fundamental geoscience research, alongside applied research that addresses key social and environmental challenges.

Since networking opportunities were limited in 2020 for scientists, for the second time EGU is trying to counteract the ongoing situation with the majority of researchers working from home. #vEGU21 is the virtual platform for geoscientists from all around the world to engage, bringing together nearly seven hundred geoscience sessions held primarily from 26 to 30 April.

For the polar prediction community, multiple sessions are relevant, such as the session “Clouds, moisture, and precipitation in the Polar Regions: Sources, processes and impacts” submitted by Irina Gorodetskaya and colleagues engaged in the YOPP-Southern Hemisphere Task Team. A list with all sessions relevant for PPP and YOPP. The complete #vEGU2021 program.

Abstracts to actively contribute to #vEGU2021 can be submitted by 13 January 2021, 13:00 CET. Submit your abstract.

Early registration rates are available until 31 March 2021, find the registration fees here. Undergraduate or master students can sign up for free.
