The Geophysical Institute has a strong presence at the American Geophysical Union's Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Joining forces with the Alaska Satellite Facility, the International Arctic Research Center, the Institute of Northern Engineering, the Water and Environmental Resources Center and the Institute of Marine Science, the GI is part of a combined booth in the Exhibitors Hall. The booth is a meeting place for UAF scientists, a recruiting tool for potential students, postdoctoral students and faculty. The booth is also an information hub on the variety of research conducted by UAF researchers.
This is the largest AGU Fall Meeting to date. Coordinators say more than 21,000 attendees are taking part. Scientists from UAF are listed as the first-author on more than 30 presentations and 107 poster sessions. UAF scientists are also in the spotlight among international media that are attending press conferences and the various sessions.
