The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
EGU General Assembly 2018 (European Geosciences Union, https://egu2018.eu/), 8 - 13 Apr 2018 in Vienna, Austria.

Various sessions within the Ocean Science (OS) groups such as those tackling the sea-level changes (OS2.14), SES circulation dynamics (OS2.2), submarine geomorphology (OS4.12), and seismic oceanography (OS4.8), do match a number of CIESM research priority items. We especially welcome the new EGU opening to the ecology research sector, which is clearly shown in these two sessions:
    • Effects of Anthropogenic Pressure on Marine Ecosystems Convener: Marco Marcelli (OS3.4/BG1.39)
    • Biogeochemistry of the benthic zone and implications for marine ecosystems Convener: Arthur Capet (BG3.2/OS3.7)
