As mentioned in our previous post to the community, in recognition of their bipartisan leadership in advancing Earth and space science policy, AGU is awarding the Presidential Citation for Science and Society to Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Gary Peters (D-MI).
We asked both Senators to share with us what receiving the award means to them.
ASLO is excited to announce the first cohort of the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange (LOREX) program participants. This NSF-funded graduate student program was initiated in order to further connect our members through international research collaboration.

When AGU Connect launched a little over a year ago, our goal was to provide an online community for Earth and space scientists to engage in discussions and build connections. Today, we’re very pleased to announce an exciting new feature: Volunteer Central.
This easy-to-use tool is intended to make volunteering with AGU even easier. Volunteer Central will make it easy to find the right opportunities for you. Once you log in to AGU Connect, all you need to do is fill out your volunteer profile and opt in to Volunteer Central. The easy-to-follow steps are included at the end of this post.

A new year is just around the corner. And with it comes the promise of new beginnings and opportunities for personal and professional growth. 2019 is also AGU’s Centennial year – a time for our community to celebrate the scientific advances made in Earth and space science over the past 100 years. For me, the advent of Centennial leads me to consider how we can make sure that our science will prosper and contribute to society for the next century.
