AGU 2017 Fall Meeting Events

Joint Seismology/Tectonophysics Luncheon: Tuesday, December 12, 12:30 -1:30 PM at the Hilton Riverside, First Floor, Grand Ballroom – Suite B.

The joint luncheon returns to the schedule this AGU meeting after a hiatus of many years. 2017 awardees and newly elected Fellows from the seismology and tectonophysics section will be honored. In addition, Dr. Gerardo Suarez of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico will update us on the recent Mexico earthquakes and the experiences with earthquake early warning there. Ticket prices are $20 for members and $10 for student members.  


Beno Gutenberg Lecture: Tuesday, December 12, 4:00 PM at the Convention Center, La Nouvelle AB room.   The 2017 Beno Gutenberg Lecture will be given by Dr. Shuichi Kodaira of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. The title of his presentation is: What we have learned about subduction zones from marine seismological exploration. Immediately prior to the lecture, we will present Dr. Lucia Gualtieri with the Keiiti Aki Young Scientist Award.


Seismology/Geodesy Early Career Networking Event and Luncheon: Wednesday, December 13, 12:20-1:40 PM @ Hilton Riverside, 3rd floor, Fulton Room.  

Only a few spots left! If you are an early career seismologist, we invite you to participate in an Early Career Networking Event at the AGU Fall Meeting.  Join your fellow early career peers and learn from senior scientists from a range of fields and sectors. The senior scientists will provide a short introduction, and then meet with the tables to answer your questions about career, work/life balance, and will help you to gain perspective. The event is sponsored by the AGU Seismology and Geodesy sections, and the EarthScope science program, along with IRIS and UNAVCO. See the next newsletter for registration information.


Seismology Student Mixer: Thursday, Dec. 14, 6:00-9:00 P.M @ Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar and Restaurant.

Seismology Section Students:  Want to catch up with friends in your field and maybe even make some new ones? Come join other seismology students at Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar and Restaurant (701 Tchoupitoulas St) for some free drinks and food. The student mixer last year was a big hit – we hope to see everyone again this year!
