Between the 12th and the 17th of April, many of the people working in the AUGURY project went to Vienna to present their work for the European Geophysical Union meeting. It is a big event in the European community of Earth Sciences. For us, it was the first meeting where we could present our new works after a year the project started.

Léa and Martina presented their posters and had many insightful interactions. The poster sessions were full of people and it was a good time for them to share their research.

It was also Claire’s first talk and she had a convincing first experience. She had questions on how plate tectonics works in her convection models, but also on other planets.

I also gave a talk on Tuesday and enjoyed sessions on data assimilations which where new for me.
