For days before it made landfall, the projections for Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Texas―and other parts of the Gulf Coast―were of devastation. Then, when the record-breaking storm arrived, our worst fears were realized as the region was inundated with 101-130 centimeters of rain, not to mention high winds and intense storm surge. Now, as we reflect on Hurricane Harvey, we do so acknowledging that other countries are suffering through catastrophic …

AGU has long been a proponent and leader in open data and open science, not only in our own publications and meetings, but also within the broader research community. I’m pleased to announce that we have taken that commitment to the next level today by launching an Application Program Interface (API) that will open the door for scientists, developers, and others to create innovative applications that advance science and our …

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 …

“Convergence” is defined as the integration of engineering, physical sciences, computation, and life sciences in order to bring about profound benefits for health, energy, and environment… It is time for the geosciences to embrace convergence, as our future depends upon it.
Event types from 2015 include tropical cyclones, extreme sunshine, nuisance tidal flooding, snowpack
drought, forest fires, and Arctic sea ice extent in addition to heat, cold, precipitation, and drought.

By Larry O’Hanlon A couple of weeks ago on this blog we shared some great student vlogging of AGU Fall Meeting experiences. At that time I noticed something peculiar about the vlogs of Portland State University undergraduate student Kimberly Gottschalk. In each new vlog post her appearance changed. She started with an almost a Victorian formality on the first day, and transformed gradually into what I suspect is her more …
