American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting


Tags: Astronomy, Physics, Exoplanets, Planetary Protection, Education, Girl Scout Stars, AAA

Time: 10 - 14 December 2018 -

Location: Washington, D. C.

The purpose of the American Geophysical Union is to promote discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity.

The AGU 2018 Fall Meeting will mark another dynamic year of discovery in Earth and space science, serve as the advent of AGU’s Centennial year, and provide a special opportunity to share our science with world leaders in Washington, D.C. As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting places you in the center of a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth.
