The American Geophysical Union’s fall conference is the place to be for many of the nation’s geoscientists. As usual, GI researchers have a lot of data to share.

With nearly 24,000 attendees and over 20,000 presentations, AGU is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. This year, the meeting takes place on the banks of the Mississippi.

Scientists from around the globe are gathering at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in Louisiana to share their most ground-breaking ideas while collaborating and celebrating science through the week of Dec. 11 - 15.

GI researchers are presenting on a wide array of subjects from warming permafrost to using satellite radar data to map earthquakes and volcanoes and more. Events include a workshop on gender equity in the geosciences, a presentation on the intersection of science and art, a press conference on beavers moving into Alaska’s tundra and a panel at the Arctic Report Card press conference which includes the GI’s Vladimir Romanovsky.

In total, over 100 UAF researchers and graduate students are attending the meeting to present their work in poster sessions, talks, panel discussions, and informal chats over coffee.

For more information about the event keep an eye on GI social media: @UAF.GI on Facebook and Instagram and @UAFGI on Twitter. We will be postin
