About & Guidelines

AGU’s goal for From the Prow is to help strengthen communications with our members, informing them of the trends, strategic questions and other important events affecting the Union and the communities we represent.

From the Prow features regular posts from AGU’s president, president-elect and executive director/CEO as well as periodic invited posts from members of the board and council, AGU staff, and leaders of various committees and task forces. Posts focus on reflections and perspectives related to AGU’s programs and initiatives, as well as issues, opportunities and developments happening in the Earth and space sciences.

The blog is intended to serve as a two-way dialogue between AGU leaders, members and the broader Earth and space science community. Commenting is strongly encouraged, as are requests for potential blog topics.
