AGU and AAS: Working Together to Expand the Understanding of Exoplanets

AGU and AAS are the fortunate recipients of a major grant from The Kavli Foundation that brings together our communities to advance the science of exoplanets. I’m proud to be a part of these institutions, particularly at critical junctures in with exoplanetary research, since this is exactly the kind of action that needs to be taken at the institutional level to help move the science forward. Exoplanet science ranks among those discoveries that inspire humankind to look beyond and think above …

“For a Borderless World of Geoscience:” Reflections on the JpGU/AGU Inaugural Joint Meeting

Four years ago, members of Japan Geosciences Union (JpGU) and AGU began working on ways our two scientific societies could work in a more collaborative and integrated fashion. A year later, AGU first participated in JpGU’s 25th anniversary symposium. Then, in 2016, AGU members presented in over 50 joint sessions at JpGU’s annual conference. This year marked the first ever fully joint AGU/JpGU meeting. “For a Borderless World of Geoscience” …
