weather@home and at EGU General Assembly 2016

Weather@home and are again significantly represented with both oral presentations and posters at the annual European Geophysical Union General Assembly, 17-22 April in Vienna. The Assembly provides a forum where geoscientists from all over the world can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience and is together with it’s American counterpart one of the largest conferences on climate science in the annual meeting calender.
