  • IAGA 2009 11th Scientific Assembly, Sopron, August 2009

  • The International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA) is one of the eight associations of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). IAGA is a non-governmental body founded to promote and coordinate studies of the electrical and magnetic properties of the Earth’s core, mantle and crust, of the middle and upper atmosphere, of the ionosphere and magnetosphere, and the Sun, the solar wind, the planets and interplanetary bodies.

  • IUGG 2007, Perugia, July 2007

    The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) is the international organization dedicated to advancing, promoting, and communicating knowledge of the Earth system, its space environment, and the dynamical processes causing change.
    Through its constituent Associations, Commissions, and services, IUGG convenes international assemblies and workshops, undertakes research, assembles observations, gains insights, coordinates activities, liaises with other scientific bodies, plays an advocacy role, contributes to education, and works to expand capabilities and participation worldwide.
    Data, information, and knowledge gained are made openly available for the benefit of society – to provide the information necessary for the discovery and responsible use of natural resources, sustainable management of the environment, reducing the impact of natural hazards, and to satisfy our curiosity about the Earth’s natural environment and the consequences of human activities.

  • EGU 2007, Vienna, April 2007

    The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over Europe and the rest of the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. Especially for young scientists the EGU appeals to provide a forum to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences
