  Information - US2 Geosciences in Africa (co-listed in GD)

Event Information
In close liaison with African nations and research councils, the European
Geosciences Union will work towards opening new large interdisciplinary
geoscience projects in Africa. To initiate this process EGU at its spring
meeting in Vienna in 2006 will organise a Union session in which the
following are underlined;

The unique relief of the African craton which is closely related to the
role of the African continent in global geodynamic cycles.

The role and feed-backs between relief (mountain belts, platforms, margins
and basins) in Africa in the hydrological and climate cycle.

Africa as the birthplace of early life, as a library of records of
evolution and catastrophic changes in biodiversity, and its key role in
hominid evolution.

The role of such projects in capacity building and enhancing the research
potential of African Universities
