Welcome to the 2014 AGU Fall Meeting. With nearly 24,000 attendees, the AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. Now in its 47th year, the AGU Fall Meeting is the best place to present your research, hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field, and network and make connections that can enhance your career.

The AGU Fall Meeting brings together the entire Earth and space sciences community for discussions of emerging trends and the latest research. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edgeAmerican Geophysical Union - Fall Meting 2012 science, much of which has not yet been published, meaning you’ll return to work with knowledge you can’t get anywhere else.

More than 95% of past attendees say their AGU Fall Meeting experience was worthwhile. Why? Attendees say it’s the best place to gain insights and updates on the latest scientific research and network with both luminaries and up-and-coming talent across disciplines.

With more than 1700 sessions, the AGU Fall Meeting’s scientific program spans the Earth and space sciences, offering something for everyone no matter their scientific discipline. The meeting offers a unique mix of more than 23,000 oral and poster presentations, a broad range of general sessions, more than 50 formal and informal networking and career advancement opportunities, and an exhibit hall packed with approximately 250 exhibitors showcasing new and relevant research tools and services that could help scientists and researchers streamline their work.

Attendees are encouraged to explore beyond their primary field of interest and to learn about related fields through SWIRLs. SWIRLs offer an interdisciplinary walk through the AGU Fall Meeting by categorizing sessions and presentations as part of broader themes in the Earth and space sciences. Examples of themes from past years include Characterizing Uncertainty, Computational Methods Across Scales, and Dust and Aerosols. Learn more about 2014/2013 SWIRLs.
