Aims & scope

The EGU General Assembly 2021 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. We aim to organize the EGU General Assembly 2021 as a hybrid on site and virtual meeting; see the provisional format for more details. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you at its General Assembly.
