Late-Breaking Sessions

In 2018 we’ve witnessed a series of natural disasters that have resulted in a significant loss of life and destroyed communities and ecosystems, and impacted the livelihoods of millions of people. Events such as these compel our scientific community to respond. Abstracts are now being accepted for the following late-breaking sessions:

  • The 2018 Mw 7.5 Sulawesi Indonesia earthquake: tsunamigenic potential of strike slip faults
  • Late Breaking contributions for the Global 2018 Hurricane, Typhoon, and Cyclone Season

Click here to review the session descriptions and to submit an abstract to one of these sessions. You will be required to log in with your AGU member credentials.

Please note that the first author rule for late-breaking sessions is waived. You may submit an abstract to a late-breaking session if you have submitted another abstract to the meeting. The deadline for submission is 11:59 PM EST, 14 November 2018.

AGU Fall Meeting is a unique opportunity to highlight the latest discoveries, insights, and advances for our global community of Earth and space scientists, and at the same time to raise appreciation of the value and impact of our science among world leaders in Washington, D.C.

It also marks the beginning of AGU’s Centennial in 2019, a time to reflect on the meaning of a century of discovery and to look ahead to the essential contributions that our science will make to understanding our world, informing policy decisions, sparking innovation, and protecting the health and welfare of people everywhere.
