The new Contract should extend well beyond research and training activities. Some of the most pressing needs include communicating the certainties and uncertainties and seriousness of different environmental or social problems, providing alternatives to address them, and educating citizens about the issues. In parallel to initiating new research, strong efforts should be launched to better communicate scientific information already in hand. — Lubchenco (1998), Science

NASA Chief Scientist Dr. James Green spoke on the Inspire Stage in Centennial Central on The Future of Lunar and Mars Exploration. Sessions like this, where one doesn’t have to be a space scientist at an Earth and space conference to understand, are an excellent example of science communication at its best.

Enter the idea of “invisible rules”. We all thought we knew the boundaries of the task at hand, of the assignment in front of us… yet we were mistaken. If this is what we as experienced instructors think, imagine what our students think.

As Scientist Spotlights require very little class time and complement existing curricula, they represent a promising tool for enhancing science identity, shifting stereotypes, and connecting content to issues of equity and diversity in a broad range of STEM classrooms.

“AGUs Thriving Earth Exchange is when scientific knowledge and community wisdom come together, where scientists do not stand for people but stand along side them. This is new – this is a movement.”
When you look at the color, shading, label placement, etc., in ocean maps, think of Marie Tharp and her legacy in marine cartography and cartographic design work.

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development is a once in a career (once in a lifetime) opportunity. The decade will not be successful if we have 20,000 individual science papers – we need to think of the big picture, to define the core opportunities, and to deliver the results.

What started as a tweet became a community guide for (not just) first-timers attending the AGU Fall Meeting. Check out the compilation by Laura Haynes, PhD candidate at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

“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.

Prince Albert II of Monaco voiced his concerns about human impacts on the planet, but shared that it is not too late to act to save our global ocean and to generate planetary stability
