EGU General Assembly 2013

The European Geosciences Union General Assembly takes place from 7-13th April 2013.  Over 11,000 attendees are registered at this largest meeting for geoscientists in Europe, I’m honoured to have my blog featured on their official blog roll.

I look forward to covering the Mars and lunar session, starting with the MSL press conference this morning at 11am (CET) together with a smattering of volcanology and geology over the week.

If you are here, don’t forget to download the EGU app, which makes it much easier to browse the mammoth programme and flag up what you want to attend, as well as having a dedicated inbuilt Twitter feed tracking the hashtag #EGU2013.

If you want to take a breather at some point, I can highly recommend the Natural History Museum. Show your EGU2013 pass to get a discount (5 euro entry fee) and don’t miss room five with the 900kg meteorite – see my next blog post! Amazing collection of meteorites including Mars and lunar samples.
