Between April 9 and 13 the EGU General Assembly will gather a large number of geoscientists in Vienna. The conference program is available here, our group will contribute on every day except Tuesday. There will be two sessions of close interest for orogeny, one on the Himalayas, and one on the Alps.
The paper describing the Hungarian component of the AlpArray seismic network and it scientific targets is freshly published. You can read the open access work here.
Within a reasonable time after the AlpArray Seismic Network was completed, the corresponding manuscript describing the array its start to its completion is now accepted in Surveys in Geophysics. More information on doi and the actual publication of the paper will follow.
The first full meeting of the AlpArray Gravity Research Group is taking place on March 8-9 in Bratislava. This gathering of 16 participants discusses the group organization, data availability and homogenization, processing, research topics as well as collaborations among the group and with other groups.
This week Shiba Subedi is participating at the Discussion Workshop on Educational and Citizen Seismology in London. Beyond presenting his own project, it is a great opportunity to learn about ongoing activities and the latest news of instrumentation for a branch of seismology that reaches far beyond researchers.
Next week will be the “Journées Biennales des Géosciences et de l’Environnement” at UNIL. It is a French-speaking event to bring together academic, governmental and private research on the broad topic of Earth sciences. On Wednesday the 14th of February will be the session La recherche fondamentale et appliquée en géologie. On Thursday will be held the 3rd meeting day of natural dangers, running under the title “Au-delà de l’aléa”, ou comment proposer une gestion intégrée des risques naturels?
The first full meeting of the AlpArray Receiver Function Working Group will be hosted by our group on January 29-30, 2018. Planning to gather 18 participants representing almost all institutions of the working group, we will discuss research topics, methods, tools, as well as collaborations among the group and with other groups.

Although not really a geoscience topic, everyone working in the Himalaya has heard of the famous and notorious yeti.
