ALEXANDRIA, Va. — With more than 24,000 anticipated attendees, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting represents the largest confluence of earth and space scientists in the world. As in years past, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) will have a strong presence at the Fall Meeting, driving conversation on topics related to the geoscience workforce and the importance of geoscience information to research and decision-making.
Throughout the meeting, AGI will also be represented in the AGU Exhibit Hall. All attendees are encouraged to stop by booth #921 to reconnect with colleagues, meet AGI and EARTH Magazine staff, and discuss upcoming internship, fellowship, and scholarship opportunities.
