UNAVCO at AGU 2013

22 December 2013


Thanks for coming to visit us at our new booth, engaging with us through talks and posters, and collaborating with us. In case you missed it, here are some highlights from AGU 2013.

The Booth

UNAVCO redesigned our booth this year for simplicity and economy. What did you think?

We still had our tectonic rulers and geodesy bumper stickers, as well as some other fun items, for the cost of a "Like" on Facebook. Haven't "Liked" us yet? Check us out!

UNAVCO staff were first authors on eight oral presentations and 15 posters.

Student Research

UNAVCO's internship program, Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science for Students (RESESS), was heavily represented at AGU this year. Eight of our 11 interns from 2013 presented either a talk or a poster, on topics ranging from deformation of Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat to the activity of post-wildfire microbial communities. Congratulations to our interns, and also to RESESS alumni who have gone on to graduate programs and were at AGU presenting their graduate research. Learn about the RESESS program and how to become a research mentor on the RESESS webpage.

Event Highlights

UNAVCO once again hosted the AGU Geodesy Section reception. Geodesy Section chair Tim Dixon presented the Outstanding Student Paper Awards to Bryan Riel, Christof Lorenz, and Estelle Chaussard. The Geodesy Section Award went to UNAVCO board member Rowena Lohman.

The annual UNAVCO businees meeting featured keynote speaker Dr. Michael Freilich, Earth Science Division Director of NASA. Longtime UNAVCO community member Bob Smith, University of Utah, talked about the evolution of geodesy since the founding of UNAVCO in 1984, and Jeff Freymueller shared an anectdote from his early days using GPS. UNAVCO director of Geodetic Infrastructure Glen Mattioli introduced the five recipients of COCONet graduate student fellowships. Congratulations again to Roby Douilly, Esteban Josue Chaves Sibaja, Steeve Symithe, Ophelia George, and Halldor Geirsson. Read about their research on the COCONet Graduate Fellowship Awardees webpage.
