CA – 2015 AGU Fall Meeting, Sunday

December 14, 2015 by Dr. G

This is one of a series of blog posts on the Journeys of Dr. G blog for the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting. Feel free to read my first post, pre-meeting, and the remainder of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday).

Although Sunday is not an official meeting day for #AGU15, I still had a full day of AGU-related activities!

IMG_0800I started the day at the Heads and Chairs workshop. From the AGU website, “This one-day workshop provides an opportunity for heads and chairs of Earth and Space Science departments to discuss issues and strategies for building a strong department, meet other heads and chairs, and learn more about current issues.” Although I am not currently a department head, there is a good chance I will be in the next couple of years (keep your fingers crossed for the environmental science major to come to Penn State Brandywine!). I decided to attend the workshop to be pro-active, to make sure I would be ready when the opportunity finally comes to lead a program. I’ve written an entire blog post on this workshop on my AGU GeoEd Trek blog – check it out!

IMG_0801As the Heads and Chairs workshop was a full day, I only had time for one additional event – the first meeting of the AGU Mentors and their mentees. AGU is doing a new program this year, matching undergraduate AGU Meeting attendees with seasoned conference attendees. I applied to participate in this program, as I have always enjoyed showing students the “ropes” of how to navigate and get the most out of professional conferences. I didn’t have any of my own students attending/presenting at AGU, so instead, I’m mentoring a student I met for the first time this evening! I’ll be blogging more later in the week about my mentee Kimberly and all that we do during AGU – stay tuned!

Tomorrow will be my busiest day at AGU. I’m meeting with Kimberly for another mentoring function for breakfast, then I have to hang up my poster, head over to the GeoCUR Workshop to present, then rush back to my poster to stand at it and present – and that is all before lunch! Stay tuned as I recap all of the Monday adventures, including meeting my second mentee at the conference!

I just submitted my entry to the Nature Narratives writing contest. If you are a fan of nature and a friend of @tylerarboretum or @psubrandywine or @pennstatebwalum, then you should take your inspiration and put it into words in any genere! Deadline is November 15th. Thanks to @vairolibrarypsu and the Penn State Brandywine Sustainovation Team and Tyler Arboretum for organizing this fun event! I can't wait to read all of the entries (not just the winning ones!) in the Short Edition dispenser on campus. Check out the details: https://tinyurl.com/naturenarratives
Just finished leading a teacher program at @TylerArboretum this morning on the @EPA Air Quality Flag Program. So thankful to @sustainPSU @PepsiCo for the funding that provided a $100 flag set to each teacher for free.
Yes, I got up early on a Saturday to see the #ISS International Space Station over Philadelphia/Media on Nov 9, 5:59 AM #SpotTheStation via @NASA - so cool, I’ll be geeking out about this experience all day!
Dear weekend, please allow me the time to start reading this book, a chronological journey of natural history/oceanography based on Melville’s experiences and what was known about the ocean at the time (1851). #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #ahabsrollingsea #richardjking
Was talking to a nurse today, she complimented my nautical @SeaBagsMaine. I told her I was an oceanographer, and she was fascinated to hear me speak about @NOAA - love these unexpected #scicomm opportunities! #seabags #recycledmaterials#recycledsails #sciencecommunication #nauticalstyle #compassrose
