Geophysical Research Abstracts (GRA) was the conference series publishing the abstracts accepted for the General Assemblies 2005–2019 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). It links the annual conference programmes listing programme groups, included sessions, and their contributions. The abstracts underwent an access review by the session conveners. From the EGU General Assembly 2020, abstracts and corresponding presentation materials become part of EGUsphere, EGU's interactive community platform, and receive a corresponding EGUsphere DOI.

The following licence and copyright agreement is valid for any abstract submitted to the EGU General Assembly 2018 or later. For abstracts submitted to earlier assemblies, the CC BY 3.0 License was used.
By submitting an abstract, the authors certify that they have read and agreed to the following terms:
The authors are authorized by their co-authors to enter into these arrangements.
The work is original and has not been formally published before (except in the form of an abstract, preprint, or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication has been approved by all the author(s) and by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – of the institutes where the work has been carried out, and that the abstract does not infringe copyright or any other rights by third parties.
The work does not contain content that is unlawful, abusive, or constitute a breach of contract or of confidence or of commitment given to secrecy.
The authors warrant that they secure the right to reproduce any material that has already been published or copyrighted elsewhere.

Under the following conditions:
Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the licence, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licenser endorses you or your use.
No additional restrictions — You may not apply legal terms or technological measures that legally restrict others from doing anything the licence permits.
The licenser cannot revoke these freedoms as long as you follow the licence terms.
You do not have to comply with the licence for elements of the material in the public domain or where your use is permitted by an applicable exception or limitation.

The CC BY License, of which 4.0 is the recent version, was developed to facilitate open access – namely, free immediate access to, and unrestricted reuse of, original works of all types.
Under this liberal licence, authors agree to make abstracts legally available for reuse, without permission or fees, for virtually any purpose. Anyone may copy, distribute, or reuse these abstracts, as long as the author and original source are properly cited. Thus, CC BY facilitates the dissemination, transfer, and growth of scientific knowledge.
