ESM contributions and events at EGU18

The EGU General Assembly 2018 (EGU18) in Vienna will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting between the 8 and the 13 April covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. EGU18 aims to provide a forum where scientists can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. 

With just three weeks to go until the EGU General Assembly 2018 we want to flag the many contributions from ESM team members and events relevant for our community. Save the dates in your personal programme to make sure you don’t miss them! And if you’re tweeting from the conference please remember to use the official hashtag #EGU18 and to tag @project_esm to make sure we can see (and re-tweet) you!
