Earlier today (3 Oct.) some abstract submitters may have received an email asking them to confirm their participation in Outstanding Student Paper Awards (OSPA). That email was sent in error, and should not have gone out until tomorrow (4 Oct.), after all official abstract notifications had been distributed. Abstract notifications will be sent out within the next 24 hours. For those submitters who plan to participate in OSPA, once you have received your official abstract notification from AGU, you can then confirm your participation in OSPA on 13 October.
We apologize any for confusion and inconvenience this may have caused. If 24 hours have passed, and you have not received your notification, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
