I’ve had to back out of attending the Fall Meeting this year, but I didn’t want to abandon my yearly Social Media roundup even though I won’t be joining in. It’s been great over the years to watch the social media and science communication activities balloon from a couple of sessions and a meetup or two to scads of activities.

Wednesday was a bit of a break in terms of activities for me. I had the chance to sit down and listen to some talks about multiparameter monitoring at volcanoes (including hearing about Diana Roman’s “BENTO Box” instrument platform, which reminds me of the ‘spiders’ that the USGS uses to get seismometers out to difficult field sites).

It’s that time again! Less than a week until AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco and my schedule is already full with a whole slew of great sessions, events and activities. As is my annual tradition, I’ve collected a list of various social-media-related items for you to peruse.

As always, I’m behind on my AGU updates (possibly because I didn’t have a chance to breathe until Wednesday!) There’s so much to do, and Tuesday was the first day that the exhibits were open, which is always a time sink. Wednesday was really the first day that I had a chance to get into the science side of things and listen to some talks and visit posters. I find talks are interesting but somewhat unsatisfying in that you don’t necessarily get much time to ask questions or discuss the topic. Posters, on the other hand, pretty much guarantee that you’ll have a chance to chat about the work with the PI.

It’s time for my annual addition of your guide to the social media events at AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco! I’ll be attending this year’s meeting (you may see me wearing a press pass and some blogging buttons), and I’ll be attending at least a few of these events. In particular, I’ll be on the panel at the Tuesday Blogger’s Forum, an co-chairing the “Social Media 101” oral session on Tuesday afternoon and the accompanying poster session Wednesday morning. Feel free to say hi if you see me around!

You may remember that at last year’s AGU Fall Meeting, I gave a talk about the challenges and rewards of science blogging. Well this year, I’m going to be co-convening a session with Simon Schneider of AGU’s Public Information Committee! Since joining AGU’s blogging network, I’ve been involved with various different facets of online science communication, although my Twitter use is admittedly a little sporadic. But the AGU geobloggers are just a small sampling of a growing group of science communicators, and we’re hoping at this year’s AGU to hear from you about your successes and advice. So why not submit an abstract to my session?

AGU’s Fall Meeting is always a full-time job, and the beginning of the meeting is no exception. My week actually started Sunday night: I attended the first gathering of AGU’s student representatives, where we discussed our roles and how we will be developing them along with our sections’ Executive Committees. The Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology section (which I am the new student rep for) meets on Wednesday, and I hope …

In between not doing any Black Friday shopping (yay for my wallet!), spending time with my family, and trying to fit in a little bit of research time, blogging has taken a hit this week. So I thought I’d do something that I did last year in preparation for AGU’s Fall Meeting, and give you a roundup of all the social-media-related activities you can partake in this year! You can keep involved even if you’re not attending the meeting itself, and there are sure to be plenty of posts, Tweets and other conversations by geobloggers during and after the meeting.
