News Media

As part of AGU's goal of promoting public understanding of geophysics and space science, AGU operates a press room and holds press conferences at many AGU-sponsored meetings. Also, press releases about research presented at the meeting are made available to reporters in the press room.


Online press registration is now closed. Members of the news media may still register for the meeting on site.

Press registration on-site is complimentary and will take place in the Press Room, which is Room F150, on the first level of the convention center. (To get to the Press Room, please be prepared to show security your press card, business card or other evidence of your eligibility as a news media registrant. This evidence is required so that you will be permitted to proceed directly to the Press Room to receive your badge.)

The Press Room will be open during the meeting: Mon–Th (2/22-25): 7:30h–1900h, F (2/26) 7:30h–1400h. The Press Room will be closed Sunday, 21 February. However, if any members of the news media need access to the convention center on that Sunday, please call Peter Weiss or Maria-José Viñas in the Press Room at 503-963-5733 to arrange to get a badge.
