Fresh off an early-morning flight from Vienna, Austria, to DC last week, I was reflecting on every moment from the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). There were more than 16,000 attendees from 113 countries representing many scientific disciplines. It was an honor to see so many students and early-career scientists as the international presence of AGU continues to grow. As a founding society member of the Societies …

The threats of climate change, growing water and energy demands and threats to human health are posing unprecedented challenges to human populations across the globe. Effective solutions to these challenges will require the expertise of the science community, in collaboration with policymakers, NGOs, non-profit organizations and corporations. It is this desire for cross organizational solutions that led AGU, in partnership with Geology in the Public Interest, the Bolin Centre for …

What I appreciate about Gabi’s article is that she expands upon the topic of making conferences accessible, emphasizing that she is only providing an introduction to the many ways that conference organizers and each of us individually can work towards making the AGU Fall Meeting a more inclusive and effective professional and personal experience for all.

Dr. Lisa Graumlich, Member, AGU Board of Directors and Dean, College of the Environment, University of Washington in Seattle AGU members think at global and interplanetary scales. As a result, small talk at an AGU gathering is never small. This was on display during the September meeting of the AGU Board of Directors. We hosted a visit from the new Director of USGS, Jim Reilly. No one batted an eyelash …

By Lauren Parr, Vice President, Meetings Paying tribute to the achievements of the past is a critical part of understanding the possibilities of the future, and there is certainly no better place to do that than at AGU’s Fall Meeting. The Fall Meeting has long been a place where ideas and concepts that will change the course of science come to light, so it’s particularly appropriate that this year’s meeting …
AGU’s Centennial is just around the corner, officially kicking off at the 2018 Fall Meeting in Washington, D. C., and running through the 2019 Fall Meeting in San Francisco, Calif. I look forward to a celebration marked by a variety of elements that will highlight the talents and drive of both our scientific sections and our membership. The Centennial offers us the opportunity for a coast-to-coast celebration of scientific achievement. …

Before you know it the 2018 Fall Meeting, the world’s largest Earth and Space scientists, will be here! Excitement about the meeting is apparent as more than 1300 session proposals have already been submitted for consideration and the Fall Meeting program committee is working hard to propose the best scientific program out of them. If you are one of those who submitted a session proposal, we are grateful for your …

By Denis-Didier Rousseau, Fall Meeting Program Chair Spring not only yields the potential for much nicer weather and longer days, it is also, perhaps more importantly, the classic time to submit session proposals for the Fall Meeting. This is a critical scientific season, as it will strongly impact the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting program. During my two terms as chair of the Program Committee, I have had the opportunity to introduce …

More than 130 geoscientists and cyberinfrastructure researchers beat the early June heat wave in Denver by spending their time planning the next stages of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) EarthCube e-infrastructure project. Attendees of the third annual All Hands Meeting (AHM) represented major geoscience data facilities, hardware and software developers and scientists interested in the digital tools being developed. This year’s AHM marked an important milestone in the EarthCube project: as it approaches its fourth year, EarthCube cyberinfrastructure is coalescing around a number of common themes regarding the handling and sharing of data in the geosciences.

By Margaret Leinen, President, American Geophysical Union; Eric Davidson, President-elect, American Geophysical Union; and Chris McEntee, Executive Director/CEO, American Geophysical Union As we notified you last December, the Moscone Center’s renovation plans pose a significant risk to our ability to deliver a successful scientific program at the Fall Meeting. While the end result will leave San Francisco with new flexible spaces and improved technology infrastructure, the disruption would impact AGU’s ability to …

I think many of you know that I started my professional career in healthcare as a nurse. During the five years I spent doing direct patient care, I witnessed many examples of how environmental exposures to toxic materials could contribute to poor health. That’s why I was so pleased to be invited to participate in a congressional briefing hosted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) titled “Linking Earth Sciences and …
