The EGU General Assembly is Europe’s largest annual conference on geosciences. Last year over 16,000 scientists from more than 100 countries participated in this annual event in Vienna. This year, the physical meeting has been cancelled to help minimizing the spread of COVID-19. The 2020 event is turned into the first virtual EGU meeting: EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU2020). All oral and poster presentations as renamed as “displays” and scientific results can be uploaded and shared using the EGU online display platform. Using the original sessions, the displays are discussed in chat sessions. The uploaded scientific results (displays) are freely available.

TiPACCs related research is abundant during this EGU. An overview of interesting sessions and displays can be found below, ordered chronologically.
