American Geophysical Union (AGU) is an international scientific society of 39,000 members, more than thirty percent of whom come from outside the U.S. As a society AGU is dedicated to advancing the understanding of Earth and its environment in space and making results availableto the public.
The European Union of Geosciences (EUG), started in 1980. Its aim is to develop cooperation among scientists in different fields of earth and planetary sciences such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, planetology, oceanography, hydrology, etc. Its membership is strictly individual and no one may represent any national organization, institution, or laboratory.
The Geochemical Society(GS) is a private nonprofit international scientific society founded to encourage the application of chemistry to the solution of geological and cosmological problems. Membership is international and diverse in background, encompassing such fields as organic geochemistry, high- and low-temperature geochemistry, petrology, meteoritics, fluid-rock interaction, and isotope geochemistry.
The Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) provides a forum for individuals interested in mineralogy, crystallography, and petrology.

Descriptions of many other sessions at the Spring Meeting are also highlighted.
Each field trip is limited to 20 participants and will include lunch and transportation ($35 per person). To reserve a space, please contact the AGU Meetings Department, Tel: +1-202-777-7332, Fax: +1-202-328-0566.
Baltimore Ecosystem Study
The Baltimore Ecosystem Study aims to understand Baltimore as an ecological system and to determine how the ecosystem changes over long time periods. Participants will visit a set of small catchments and experimental plots located in forested, agricultural, suburban, and urban land uses. Participants will view measurements and results from a set of ecosystem plots and catchment-scale studies that focus on storage and fluxes of terrestrial carbon, water, and nutrients. The trip will be led by Larry Band from the University of North Carolina and Peter Groffman from the Institute of Ecosystem Studies.
Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) is dedicated to increasing knowledge of the biological and physical processes that sustain life on earth. SERC's interdisciplinary research applies long-term studies to examine ecological questions about landscapes of linked ecosystems, especially those impacted by human activities. Located on the shore of Chesapeake Bay in Edgewater, Maryland, SERC uses the geographic features of the nation's largest estuary to investigate interconnections of aquatic, terrestrial, and atmospheric components of complex landscapes, which are then compared on regional, continental, and global scales. Participants will view measurement sites for specific field-based research projects, including the response of a salt marsh ecosystem to elevated CO2, nutrient export from a riverine ecosystem to the Chesapeake Bay, and the effects of ultra-violet radiation on plankton. The field trip will be led by Patrick Magonigal, a research scientist at SERC.
