AGI was founded in 1948, under a directive of the National Academy of Sciences, as a network of associations representing geoscientists with a diverse array of skills and knowledge of our planet.
The Institute provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society’s use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.
No matter your individual discipline, AGI's essential programs and services will strengthen your connection to the geosciences.
Guiding AGI are some of the top leaders of the geosciences, all with established scientific careers and demonstrated leadership in their respective societies.
Restrained vertical mixing was the main reason for near-surface PM Diatoms are a group of phytoplankton species responsible for ~ 25% of primary production on Earth.
Ocean acidification (OA) could influence diatoms but the key question is if they become more or less important within marine food webs.
We surveyed 5399 river mouths greater than 50 m wide and found that 2174 (40%) create a delta.
The conditions that lead to delta formation are high sediment input and low wave and tide conditions.
A new study spearheaded by Earth scientists at the University of Cologne's Institute of Geology and Mineralogy has constrained the age of the Moon to approximately 50 million years after the formation of the solar system. We invite Ph D students, postgraduates, research fellows, academic staff and any others teaching geoscience in higher education to fill in a short survey to help us understand the role EGU could play in further supporting higher education.Read more increase during the aerosol accumulation stage was mainly attributed to strong production by the aerosol chemistry process and weak removal by advection and vertical mixing.The EGU, in close collaboration with the Secretariat of the European Parliament (EP) Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development, is providing an EGU member with the opportunity to visit Brussels and work alongside a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for a day.Read more EGU’s Committee on Education aims to provide support for higher education, from organising workshops to providing networking opportunities for all those teaching geoscience in higher education.

A rock with a foliation looks like a pile of ‘leaf-sheets’ that appear piled up one upon the other.

This week’s question just gives me lots of inspiration.
