The European Geosciences Union General Assembly took place earlier this month, bringing over 15,000 scientists from across the world together in Vienna. Of the sessions convened, over 100 had a mountain focus - including 'Mountain Climates: Processes, Change, and Related Impacts' co-coordinated by the MRI.
The annual European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly is Europe's largest and most prominent geosciences event, attracting scientists from all over the world.
March this year marked a significant Swiss anniversary: 30 years since the launch of project HADES. But although a name shared with the Greek god of the underworld might evoke images of darkness and death, HADES is all about shedding light on a substance essential to life: water.
