AGU (American Geophysical Union) Fall Meeting is the most influential event in the world dedicated to the advancement of Earth and space sciences. Every year, AGU Fall Meeting convenes >25,000 attendees from 100+ countries to share research and network. Researchers, scientists, educators, students, policymakers, enthusiasts, journalists and communicators attend AGU Fall Meeting to better understand our planet and environment, and our role in preserving its future. It is a results-oriented gathering rooted in celebrating and advancing positive individual and collective outcomes. This year, #AGU21 will be held at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and available online from 13-17 December.

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) has been playing an active role at AGU. We'd like to inventory the presentations involving EOAS at AGU this year. Please find the schedule below for time, authors, presentation titles and links.
