AGU Council Recommends “Cool Science” at Fall Meeting

We are experimenting with the introduction of scientific “neighborhoods” – Earth Interior, Earth Covering, Beyond Earth, and Scientific Nexis – in New Orleans at the Fall Meeting. The convention center is very long and spread out, and so to make more time for conversation between disciplines and reduce travel time, the Poster Hall and Session rooms will be oriented around these neighborhoods. Today the AGU Council, AGU’s scientific leadership as …

In the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

For days before it made landfall, the projections for Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Texas―and other parts of the Gulf Coast―were of devastation. Then, when the record-breaking storm arrived, our worst fears were realized as the region was inundated with 101-130 centimeters of rain, not to mention high winds and intense storm surge. Now, as we reflect on Hurricane Harvey, we do so acknowledging that other countries are suffering through catastrophic …

Solutions for the Planet, One Community at A Time

When I was child growing up in a small town in Western Pa., the stream water in our town was bright orange. We called it “Sulphur Creek.” It was colored due to the acid run off from the strip mines surrounding the town.  Thanks to science, steps have been taken to clean that waterway.  Yet, the citizens of this town still face environmental concerns with hydraulic fracturing occurring in the …
