In 59 BC, one of the earliest known newspapers, the Acta Diurna, is believed to have been founded by Julius Caesar. In 1450, Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press. In 1974, an online only publication, the News Report, was launched on the PLATO system – a predecessor to today’s internet – at the University of […]
A few weeks ago I shared some very exciting news with you about a new addition to the AGU family (Moments that Changed History – 9 December). Well, the big day has finally arrived . . . Eos, the flagship newspaper of the Earth and space science community is now a robust, dynamic, open, and […]
By David Sibeck (NASA/GSFC), President, Space Physics and Aeronomy Section While the effects of most space-weather events are not as immediately recognizable as floods, hurricanes, or tsunamis, they can be just as detrimental. Extreme space-weather events could cause prolonged losses of electrical power that would be incredibly destructive to the lives and livelihoods of millions […]
By Eric Davidson, President-elect, American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Chair, AGU Council, and Sam Mukasa, Chair, 2015-2016 Honors and Recognition Committee On behalf of AGU leaders and staff, we give our heartfelt congratulations to all of this year’s Section and Focus Group awardees and named lecturers. Listed below are the scientists, in various stages of […]

AGU’s mission and vision center on advancing Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity, and communicating its power to ensure a sustainable future for us all. Our ability to collaborate with organizations that share our values – who can also help to amplify the reach and impact of our work – is critical […]
AGU is committed to providing ways for students to receive support for and be recognized for their research, from in-person presentations at our meetings and publishing in AGU’s journals, to career advice and opportunities, and participating on Union committees and task forces. In particular, we recognize how important presenting research is to Earth and space […]

AGU has occupied our current 62,000-square foot, five-story headquarters building, located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington, D.C., since 1994. While the building has served us well for more than two decades, many of its systems are reaching the end of their useful life, making them unreliable and less efficient. Not only does this […]
The post Renovating AGU’s Headquarters: Advancing our Mission; Serving As A Role Model appeared first on From The Prow.
The 2015 AGU Fall Meeting is just around the corner and we at AGU are making final preparations for what promises to be another remarkable convening of the Earth and space sciences. In addition to the robust scientific program that is the heart of the meeting, I’m excited about the diversity of activities we are […]
UPDATE: As a result of scheduling issues, the Board of Directors decision on the potential change in location for the 2017 and 2018 Fall Meetings has been delayed until later in February. The results of that vote – as well as the results of the member/attendee survey that was conducted to help inform their decision […]
By Margaret Leinen, President, American Geophysical Union; Eric Davidson, President-elect, American Geophysical Union; and Chris McEntee, Executive Director/CEO, American Geophysical Union As we notified you last December, the Moscone Center’s renovation plans pose a significant risk to our ability to deliver a successful scientific program at the Fall Meeting. While the end result will leave San Francisco […]

From ocean sciences and geology to seismology and planetary sciences, when our headquarters building was designed in the early 90s every effort was made to have the structure be representative of the broad array of sciences comprised by AGU’s membership. More than 20 years later, with that building’s critical infrastructure reaching the end of its […]

As you know from my previous messages, the question of AGU’s relationship with ExxonMobil (and our relationship with the larger oil and gas industry) has been a topic of great discussion for the last few months. When the most recent request to end ExxonMobil sponsorship and address questions about how our community should respond to […]

Earlier this Spring I shared a progress report on our plans to renovate AGU’s headquarters, with the goal of having the building become a living representation of our mission and the sciences we represent, celebrate and help to advance. I’m pleased to let you know that in late May we took a significant step forward […]
The post Major Milestone Achieved in Path to AGU Headquarters Renovation Approval appeared first on From The Prow.
When AGU undertook the project to renovate our headquarters building nearly two years ago we had three goals in mind to ensure that the project would provide the highest level of benefit to our members: 1) to enhance visibility of and create a destination attraction for Earth and space science; 2) to advance the adoption […]

By Margaret Leinen, President, American Geophysical Union and Eric Davidson, President-elect, American Geophysical Union Last week the AGU Board of Directors discussed the organization’s April decision to continue engagement with ExxonMobil after receiving additional information from several sources. The Board maintained its original decision after another careful and systematic review of hundreds of pages of […]

On behalf of the Governance Committee, I am pleased to announce the newly elected members of the AGU Board and Council. As I said in my September post, these individuals will play an essential role within and outside the AGU community. They will collaborate with committees, task forces, other volunteers and staff to achieve our […]
Today, I am delighted to announce that our project team has reached the final stage and approval for the renovation of AGU’s headquarters building. This weekend, after a multiyear process, the project received final approval from AGU’s Board of Directors and is now ready to begin construction in March 2017. As I have shared previously, […]

Today, AGU issued this letter to federal agency heads and press release to science-interested media. AGU expressed its concern over recent reports related to scientific integrity and open communication of scientific information generated by federal agencies to the public. We will continue to monitor what’s happening to science at the federal agency level and speak out […]
I wanted to let you know that Susan Avery has resigned from the AGU Board of Directors. She is joining the ExxonMobil Board of Directors on 2 February. Given that there could be a perceived conflict of interest, she offered to resign from her AGU Board position. While we were excited that she was elected […]

If the thought had ever crossed my mind when I first joined AGU in 1990 that I might one day join its leadership, I would have dismissed it as highly unlikely. As a graduate student, I had imprinted on a community of soil scientists and ecologists. I attended my first AGU meeting to stand in […]
