CEH scientists are among those presenting research updates to the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna this week (12-17 April 2015). The meeting at the Austria Center Vienna brings together scientists from all over the world to discuss aspects of Earth, planetary and space sciences.
Abstracts of oral and poster presentations led by CEH scientists and students can be found below:
- Sources of greenhouse gases and carbon monoxide in central London (UK). Carole Helfter
- Ecosystem-scale trade-offs between impacts of ozone and reactive nitrogen. Ed Rowe
- Eddy-covariance data with low signal-to-noise: time-lag determination, uncertainties and limits of detection. Ben Langford
- Concentrations and behaviour of atmospheric ammonia above the Amazon rain forest. Eiko Nemitz
- Deriving a speciated atmospheric nitrogen budget at Auchencorth Moss, a background in south east Scotland. Marsailidh Twigg
- Development of a UV miniaturised Fourier Transform Spectrometer (MicroFTS) for the detection of Dissolved Organic Carbon in water. Paul Scholefield
- Hydrological assessment of radar-raingauge merging techniques using the Grid-to-Grid model. Paul Mattingley
- Hydroecological impacts of climate change modelled for a lowland UK wetland. Andrew House

- The sensitivity of global ozone predictions to dry deposition schemes and their response to climate change. Federico Centoni
- Detecting soil moisture impacts on convective initiation in Europe. Christopher Taylor
- Soil organic carbon mining versus priming - controls of soil organic carbon stocks along a management gradient. M Carmen Blanes
- Land surface energy budget during dry spells: global CMIP5 AMIP simulations vs satellite observations. Belen Gallego-Elvira

Additionally, Dr Eiko Nemitz is a convenor of two sessions on Biosphere-atmosphere exchanges, while Bob Moore is convening a PICO session on hydrological forecasting.
On Thursday, Prof Christel Prudhomme is one of the panel of experts taking part in the Young Hydrologic Society's session on Meet the expert in hydrology - the mystery of evaporation.
Good luck to everyone taking part!
Not in Vienna? All great debates, union symposia, press conf., some medal lectures at #EGU15 are being streamed live! http://t.co/4ONMdfAvZ6 — EGU (@EuroGeosciences) April 13, 2015
