About the Late Breaking Sessions "COVID-19 and GeoHealth"

To date, enormous and irreversible changes have occurred on societal structure and humanity through restrictions on movement and restraints on economic activity as a consequence of the globally expanding coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
How do this global infection and the response of society relate to and affect Earth’s systems, including the atmosphere, ocean, land, and mankind? What can we learn from this unprecedented global experience, and how can we use our knowledge and experience in the future for constructing sustainable humanity and the Earth’s environment?
During JpGU-AGU Joint Meeting 2020: Virtual, we will host 4 Late-Breaking Sessions as listed below, regarding "COVID-19 & GeoHealth" and discuss these important issues from the geoscience viewpoint.
Also, we will make a special abstract call for iPoster presentations. We ask all participants to contribute to these important societal and scientific issues and participate in the late-breaking sessions.
