The IV National Hydrological Congress
The IV National Hydrological Congress under the patronage of the Association of Polish Hydrologists and the Hydrological Commission of the Polish Geographical Society will be held in Warsaw on 21-23 September 2022. As before, the Congress will be hosted at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW). The Congress gathers Polish hydrologists and is the largest scientific event of such kind in Poland.

Yet another success of the Acta Geophysica journal
on 28th June 2022, Clarivate Analytics announced the latest issue of the Journal Citation Reports with Impact Factors for 2021.
We are pleased to inform that the flagship journal of the IG PAS, Acta Geophysica, published together with the Committee of Geophysics PAS, achieved the highest impact factor so far: IF2021 = 2.293, IF5_year = 1.960, thus ranking in the third quartile (Q3) of the most valuable journals in the GEOCHEMISTRY & GEOPHYSICS category. Compared to last year's statistics, this result is higher by: 0.235 and 0.303, respectively (IF2020 = 2.058, IF5_year = 1.657). The growing trend undoubtedly proves a significant increase in the content-related level and recognition of the journal in the scientific community.
We are also proud of the high score in the SCOPUS ranking, in which Acta Geophysica obtained Cite Score2021 = 3.4 and SNIP2021 = 0.946.
Sincerely thanks to all readers, authors and reviewers, without whom the success of the journal would not be possible. We encourage you to read, publish and cite our articles. Let’s hope that thanks to our continued efforts, we will be able to achieve an even better result in the future.

The General Assembly of the European Geophysical Union (EGU):
May 23-27, 2022
In Vienna and online, on May, 23-27, the General Assembly of the European Geophysical Union (EGU) will be held for the first time after a two-year break in a hybrid form. As usual, hundreds of sessions were planned, to which a dozen of thousand speeches on topics related to Earth and environmental sciences were submitted. Detailed information about the conference can be found here.
The Committee is a partner of the conference Hydrogeology in practice – practice in hydrogeology
May 23-25, 2022, Chęciny
On May 23-25, 2022, the third edition of the conference Hydrogeology in practice – practice in hydrogeology will take place at ECEG "Rzepka" in Chęciny. The Committee on Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences is a partner organization of the conference. More information here.
Honorary patronage of the Committee of Geophysics PAS in the Earth: Otherworld project
We are pleased to announce that the Committee of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences has been the honorary patron of a project organized by the Polish Association of Physics Students under the name: Earth: Otherworld, whose aim is to conduct geophysical research and apply technologies used in the study of the Earth's magnetic field during the simulation of the Martian mission in Habitat Marte in Brazil.
The Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, as a leading scientific and research institution in geophysical sciences (including magnetic and magnetotelluric research), eagerly follows and supports innovative scientific projects, which in this particular case may be important for the possibility of detecting a residual magnetic field on the Red Planet. The consequence of such a discovery could be evidence of the occurrence of the phenomenon of magnetohydrodynamic dynamo, and thus evidence of the occurrence of plutonic phenomena in the interior of the planet.
The Committee of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences wishes good luck in the implementation of the project!
