Will, Niki, and Bill attended the Fall 2017 AGU meeting in New Orleans. Will presented a poster on his analysis of reactive bromine events in the Arctic session on Monday. Niki had her poster on OCO-2 validation from Fairbanks, Alaska on Wednesday. Bill had a talk in the wintertime chemistry session on Friday. It was a great week meeting colleagues and learning about recent findings and planning for the future.
Congratulations to all presenters at the Environmental Chemistry Symposium. We had a great keynote from Joel Thornton and a great day of presentations and questions. Congrats to Niki and Will for great talks!
Congratulations to all participants in the 2016 Environmental Chemistry Symposium. Our group had five talks, which went great, and Niki won the “Best Questions from the Audience Award”. Congrats to all and see you next year.
I’m just back from the Chemistry of the Sea and Sky Symposium that was in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was great to visit with my Canadian (and some US) colleagues to the South and catch up on happenings in Environmental Chemistry. http://www.csc2014.ca/about/welcome.html
The Session was:
Chemistry of the Sea and Sky
The chemistry of the sea and sky can impact human health, environmental quality, and climate. Chemistry that occurs within marine and atmospheric environments is complicated by interactions and feedbacks between the ocean, sea ice, and atmosphere, as well as interfacial processes. This session will focus on chemistry in the bulk phase and interfaces and will include topics such as the exchange of reactive and greenhouse gases, black carbon and aerosols, sea spray production, ocean acidification, and biogeochemical cycles of nutrients, and major and trace elements and isotopes.

While at AGU Meghan Murphy from the UAF public relations office wrote a nice article about AGU. As luck would have it, she asked me to be one of the students she interviewed for her piece. Check out her article at the following link.
The word of Peter’s excellent talk and Erin’s poster made it back to Alaska. Congrats to them on successful presentations!
Peter’s talk is today (Monday 9 Dec 2013) in the C12A. C12A. Physical and Chemical Air-Snow-Ice Interactions: From the Micro to the Global Scale II session. If you are at AGU, please check it out. Best of luck to Peter.
Graduate students Peter Peterson and Erin Gleason are headed to the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to present recent results. Peter will give a talk and Erin a poster. Best wishes for your presentations at AGU and enjoy the meeting.
