Joan Maso elected president of the section Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI) of the EGU

The charge is expected to last two years and will start from the next General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2013. EGU, the European Geociencies Union, is the union of Europe's leading experts in geosciences. It is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the geosciences and the planetary and space sciences for the benefit of humanity. It was created in September 2002 as a merger of the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG). Headquartered in Munich, Germany.

New project of fundamental not oriented research by the Mineco, DinaCliVe

GRUMETS have received the grant of a new 3-year project within the call "applet Basic Research Projects unoriented. Thematic area management: atmosphere, climate and climate change (CGL-CLI)" of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Mineco). The new project, DinaCliVe (spatio-temporal analysis of land cover and vegetation stress in the Iberian P. light of half a century (1975-2025) of climate dynamics and suspension anomalies) - CGL2012-33927, proposes analyze the dynamics of land use and cover and vegetation stress, with particular emphasis on drought, and explore the role that climate change may have played in these phenomena.

Will participate in the project GRUMETS members, besides Dr. Martha Anderson (research physical scientist at the Department of Agriculture (USDA)) and Dr. Christopher Hain (research associate at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center NOAA-NESDIS of the University of Maryland (USA)).
