The Games Night is a space to gather, socialise, and play some games. The catch is that all the games are based on Geoscience! Bring along your own games or try one of the others in the session and meet the people who created them. This will also be your chance to try games featured in the Games for Geoscience session.

Do you have data-related questions? Are you looking to make your data and/or software open and FAIR? Are you interested in tools and resources for working with your data or for finding data to reuse? The Virtual Data Help Desk is here for you!

The Virtual Data Help Desk (https://www.esipfed.org/news/data-help-desk-at-egu-2020), which is a program of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), and EarthCube, provides researchers with opportunities to engage with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software open and FAIR. The Virtual Data Help Desk will be staffed with experts from the Earth science informatics community to answer data-related questions and to demo useful resources.

During the Virtual Data Help Desk, YOU can:

● Ask Data Questions: Share your questions any time from May 4th-May 8th via Twitter using the hashtag #DataHelpDesk. Our team of Earth science data professionals has decades of experience in informatics and in many scientific domains and specializes in topics like finding, sharing, analyzing, publishing, and citing data.

● Watch Tool Demos & Tutorials: We will direct you to helpful tutorials and demos throughout the week that will highlight tools and resources you can use to manage your data and enhance your research. Follow #DataHelpDesk to hear about these!

● Join Virtual Office Hours & Other Events:Some of our partners will host virtual office hours and other live drop-in events throughout the week, where you can ask questions, view demos, and more. Follow #DataHelpDesk to hear about these!

The Data Help Desk has been a physical event in years past, but this year represents an exciting opportunity for anyone to jump in and ask questions, regardless of geographic location. Join us to improve your data skills and practices!

This initiative is aimed at enabling both scientists and students to explore key geological sites, through online-accessible Virtual Outcrops and 360 VR videos (https://geovires.unimib.it/). This immersive activity can be experienced directly at home, with the aid of a mobile phone, a laptop, a tablet, as well as by using a Virtual Reality headset.

During Covid-19 times, the virtual exploration can be carried out safely at home: the viewers will have a chance to move around a great variety of environments, ranging from the Italian seafloor to the Maldivian coral reef, from active volcanoes like Santorini to outstanding faults, fractures and craters in Northern Iceland.

All 3D models are provided with a scientific description and several annotations for a full and autonomous virtual survey. Moreover, the staff will be available to virtually guide the explorers during two chat events, scheduled at lunch time, one dedicated to terrestrial environments (lunch break on the 5th) and one to coastal and marine environments (lunch break on the on 7th).

The initiative is supported by the EGU Outreach Committee.

Public information:

Communicating complex science into the public is a task for all of us - and audiovisual formats reach furthest. Within the research network “EarthShape – Earth Surface Shaping by Biota” we have attempted to do this with a science movie, showing fascinating landscapes in Chile, scientists at work, conceptual animations, and even dance!

The topic is: What forms the landscapes of the Earth with its mountains, rivers, soils, the places we live in? Is Earth’s surface shaped when rocks are uplifted by geologic forces, and are then destroyed by rain, ice, and wind; or do plants with their roots, animals that dig into soil and the vast number of microorganisms shape the landscapes?

The movie was designed and produced by:
Friedhelm von Blanckenburg, GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences Potsdam Wolfgang Dümcke, Filmbüro-Potsdam Kirstin Übernickel, Universität Tübingen
