About: FROM THE BLOG…. More and more, I’ve noticed that the audience that matters the most to me in my job – my students – are not fully aware of the duties of a faculty member, and how there is much more to my job than teaching. Hands-down, my passion lies with providing the most effective and innovative approaches to introductory-level Earth science instruction in my classroom. But there are times I “disappear” during the semester, and I’m challenged with trying to explain to students that going to a conference is actually WORK, not a vacation!
Topics at Meeting: A variety of topics – the sessions I attend, the keynotes and films, a description of my presentation and the session I present in, and the stories of my undergraduate researcher who is attending her first national conference and presenting in the undergraduate student research session on Tuesday afternoon.
Blog: Magma Cum Laude Contact: Jessica Ball
About: Volcanology and volcanic hazards, life as a graduate student in the geosciences, my field experiences, science communication, and any other geoscience topic that happens to strike my fancy.
Topics at Meeting: Science communication through social media, physical volcanology (particularly hydrothermal systems on volcanoes), volcanic hazard assessment and mitigation, and general happenings around the conference.
Blog: Mass Media Musings Contact: Abbey Dufoe
About: This blog is a conglomeration of environmental musings and mass media musings. I write about social media and environmental issues mostly, and I enjoy an interdisciplinary approach to media and science.
Topics at Meeting: While at the AGU Fall Meeting, I plan to blog each day about what I encounter and about my experiences. Since I am presenting on Tuesday, I will be attending presentations on Monday and plan to blog about what I learn from them. After my presentation on Tuesday, I will blog about the experience of presenting at my last undergraduate research conference!
Blog: Paleowave Contact: Kaustubh Thirumalai
About: This blog is about my research in paleoclimatology/paleoceanography and paleogeodesy. I deal with topics and current literature centered around corals, foraminifera, paleoclimate and paleo-geodesy.
Topics at Meeting: I will be covering as many paleoclimatology/paleoceanography sessions as possible; along with various presentations dealing with paleogeodesy and paleoseismology.
Blog: Planetwater Contact: Claus Haslauer
About: (ground-) water and (geo-) statistics
Topics at Meeting: Intersting talks and the latest from beer o’clock
Blog: Scatterings Contact: Bob Sica
About: All that’s fit to print concerning the Purple Crow Lidar and general scientific ramblings of the author.
Topics at Meeting: Last year was lots about the various posters and talks I was at. Maybe more general musing this year? Maybe both. A couple years ago I had an exclusive interview the “Geo-pigeon”, the pigeon that was flying around the posters all week, maybe some interviews?

About: Most basically, it’s an earthquake blog. More specifically, it talks about recent and historic earthquakes, interesting fault-related places I’ve visited, and whatever earthquake-related news I want to weigh in on.
Topics at Meeting: I’ll try to do a summary of the sessions I attend, which will be mostly earthquake dynamics things. I’ll probably also talk about what it’s like to be at AGU in my last year as a graduate student, knowing that I’m there to connect with potential employers and advisers in addition to the usual sharing of research.

Topics at Meeting: Faults and Earthquakes
Blog: Vi-Carius Contact: Shawn
Topics at Meeting: I will mostly be covering the poster session and general meeting events, however, it is likely that I will blog about any outstanding sessions or talks that I will attend.
