The European Geosciences Union General Assembly is back. The 2021 EGU edition will be held again online from 19 to 30 April.

All scientific sessions at 'vEGU21: Gather online' will be run in the new virtual PICO (vPICO) format, which is modelled after the popular interactive touchscreen presentations used at in-person EGU General Assemblies. Each 1.5-hour-long vPICO session will feature approximately 20 abstracts and be divided into two parts: an overview and chats.

Here there are the scheduled sessions authored or co-authored by GEO3BCN-CSIC researchers.
