Fathom’s research at EGU24

Partnered with

On April 14, 2024 a contingent of Fathomers once again descended upon Vienna, Austria, to attend the annual EGU (European Geosciences Union) General Assembly. 

The event brings together scientists from all around the globe, for five days of talks, presentations and posters into all aspects of Earth, planetary and space scientists. 

Research is one of Fathom’s key pillars. By publishing our research in leading academic journals we expose our methodologies to independent peer review, while also adding our research to the existing work in the field of hydrology to help better characterize and reduce uncertainties. Only with transparency can cross-platform validation and scientific advancement be achieved.

The team had a number of presentations and posters at the event, though also attended to meet with other scientists and learn more about industry-leading work being completed by other experts in the field.

Fathom’s presence at EGU 2023

A number of Fathomers journeyed to Vienna in 2023 for EGU; some to present their work and others simply to absorb. Learn more about the presentations at last year’s event.

Fathom continues to research and publish findings in peer-reviewed journals
