EGU 2019, the largest geosciences meeting in Europe, brings together thousands of geoscientists from all over the world, covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The assembly is an opportunity to share information, learn about new developments, and find out about the latest research on climate, space, and planetary science missions, natural disasters, and plastic pollution.

IIASA researchers from several research programs – including the Ecosystems Services and Management, Energy, and Water programs – will present their work during oral and poster presentations at the meeting.
