Workshops at Fall Meeting 2019

You come to AGU Fall Meeting to see the latest discoveries and advances, expand your network and get new ideas. Scientific workshops are a great way to advance your science while getting to know your fellow scientists in small group settings.

Take a deep dive into new technology tools, gain new insights, and explore subjects outside of your purview. Workshops are open to all AGU Fall Meeting attendees and range between half-day or full-day sessions. Each workshop carries an additional registration fee, with separate rates for students.
