New Insights and Discoveries at AGU 2020

A starry night sky; AGU Fall Meeting, Shaping the Future of Science, December 1-17, 2020

Though the pandemic has impacted conferences and travel, groundbreaking science is continuing. Thousands of researchers across the world are gathering for the first virtual American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual fall meeting to share new findings  on climate change, groundwater resources and more. After a week of panels, workshops, and innovative events, the scientitific program will continue December 7 – 17.  Stanford faculty, students and scholars are presenting their work along with fellow scientists and researchers from various disciplines in the earth and planetary sciences. Though researchers will be participating from home, the virtual format seeks to continue the exchange of ideas, interdisciplinary collaborations, and discussions of solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental challenges rthat characterize the AGU annual meeting, the largest gathering of earth and space scientists in the world.
