European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly

14 – 19 April 2024, Vienna, Austria

The EGU General Assembly 2024 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

One of the splinter meetings in the programme will be partially co-convened by the consortium of Metrology Partnership project Metrology for multi-scale monitoring of soil moisture (SoMMet, 21GRD08). This meeting on Thursday 18 April will have the title ‘In situ soil moisture: What are the errors sources, and how can we derive a traceable uncertainty budget?’ and will facilitate the information exchange and discussions on the open problems of establishing the SI-traceability for soil moisture measurement under laboratory and outdoor conditions. This topic is one of the main objectives of the project SoMMet. Findings from this event will be used to feed back into the future work of the project.
