This meeting provides an outstanding opportunity for researchers, teachers, students, and consultants to review the latest issues affecting the Earth, the planets, and their environment in space.
You may contribute to the success of this meeting by submitting an abstract and attending the presentations. Don't miss this chance to attend scientific sessions targeting your specific needs and interests, and to meet with your colleagues to review the latest developments in your field.
American Geophysical Union (AGU) is a society of over 33,000 members with purposes of advancing progress in the Earth, atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic, and space and planetary sciences. AGU is dedicated to fostering high-quality scientific research, disseminating the results of that research, enhancing educational opportunities in science, and encouraging international cooperation in geophysics.
Estuarine Research Federation (ERF) promotes research in estuarine and coastal waters and communication between members of its affiliated societies. The Federation conducts meetings and is available as a source of advice on matters concerning estuaries and the coastal zone.
Geochemical Society (GS) encourages the application of chemistry to the solution of geological and cosmological problems.
Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) provides a forum for individuals interested in mineralogy, crystallography, and petrology.
Baltimore's renaissance has transformed the city into a fabulous playground where visitors can fully enjoy themselves. Most of Baltimore's attractions are located within walking distance of the Convention Center, AGU's designated hotels, and the Inner Harbor.
During your free time you can explore the wonders found at the National Aquarium, home to more than 5,000 specimens of aquatic life. Discover hands-on exhibits and see fascinating shows in the Davis Planetarium and the five-story IMAX Theater at the Maryland Science Center. Climb aboard the decks of the U.S. submarine Torsk and the U.S. Frigate Constellation, the oldest American warship continuously afloat. Enjoy the shops in the twin pavilions of Harborplace with its multilevel gallery, a modern mecca of food, fashion, and style.
Evening diversions include a glorious array of international cuisine and native Maryland seafood specialties that offer endless dining options. Pub-hopping in historic Fell's Point or dancing at one of the many clubs are also popular pastimes.
This meeting will cover topics on all areas of geophysical sciences, and therefore, contributed papers on any topic in geophysics are encouraged. In addition to the many general sessions, there will be a number of special sessions.
Because of the close ties between many aspects of geophysics, special steps will be taken to facilitate sessions involving multiple sections. These include the scheduling of Union sessions, the joint sponsorship of sessions by multiple sections, and some themes that will cut across section interests to which individual sessions may be related.
