GeoLog is our new blog

30 Nov

This week, the European Geosciences Union is re-launching its blog with a new name, web address and design. Welcome to GeoLog!

As with our official twitter account (first @egu2010, recently changed from @egu2011 to @EuroGeosciences), the previous blogs, egu2010.wordpress.com and egu2011.wordpress.com, were initially created in association with the annual EGU General Assembly. Posts, mostly about the meeting, were more frequent at and around the time of the General Assembly. But we want the EGU blog to be constantly updated thoughout the year, something Jennifer started already in the 2011 version, and to have a fixed name: GeoLog.

GeoLog will bring news about the Union and its activities year-round, while keeping the regular posts about the General Assembly. Other posts include the weekly Imaggeo on Mondays, which highlights a picture from EGU’s open-access image repository, Imaggeo, and the monthly Geosciences column, featuring recent research in the earth, planetary and space sciences.

We have also imported all content of previous blogs into GeoLog so that readers can access all posts ever published on EGU blogs from this website. Please refer to the archives on the right-hand side for information published in previous years.

If you don’t want to miss out on the blog’s regular updates, please subscribe to it (RSS button on the top right of the header) or follow the EGU on twitter, facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.

    I’m glad you like it!

    It’s a wonderful photograph, isn’t it? And there are a lot more like it on imaggeo.net.
