AGU 2013 sessions and workshop

SESSION: ED23D. Models of Successful Undergraduate Research Programs in the Earth Sciences

With advances in technology, increased field access, changes in funding, increased interdisciplinary work, and global connections, undergraduate research mentoring and programs are varied in their structure and expectations. This session encourages submissions from mentors, departments, and/or institutions to describe models of working with individual students to describing department requirements and institution-wide practices. We encourage submissions that address how mentors and administrators are successfully addressing challenges of supporting students with resources beyond normal grant funding for student work.

*FOR STUDENTS ONLY* SESSION: ED33D. Undergraduate Geoscience Research and Outreach Posters

This poster session will bring together undergraduate student presenters with faculty co-authors to highlight Earth science, geoscience, space science, and geophysics research experiences and outreach efforts. Students from community colleges to research institutions, from the freshman through senior years are encouraged to disseminate their original ongoing and completed projects. The first author on the abstract must be an undergraduate student. This session is co-sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research-Geoscience Division, Society of Physics Students, the National Science Foundation- Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program, and the American Geophysical Union. (31 posters)

*FOR STUDENTS IN TWO-YEAR COLLEGES ONLY* SESSION: ED41C. Undergraduate Geoscience Research and Outreach Posters Virtual E-Poster Session Only)

This virtual poster session will bring together two-year college undergraduate student presenters with faculty co-authors to highlight Earth science, geoscience, space science, and geophysics research experiences and outreach efforts.  Students from community colleges are encouraged to disseminate their original ongoing and completed projects.  The first author on the abstract must be a two-year college student. Authors will participate in this session virtually; physical presence at the Fall Meeting is not required. Authors will receive more information on the logistics of their virtual participation once their abstract has been accepted. This session is co-sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research-Geoscience Division, Society of Physics Students, the National Science Foundation- Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program, and the American Geophysical Union.

Incredible! #Repost @cofcnaturalhistory with @get_repost ・・・ Student volunteers and researchers revealing the past - as recently highlighted by @postandcourier! There is so much to do in order to keep CCNHM running that we rely on a small corps of student volunteers, docents, and junior scientists to maintain CCNHM as a center of natural history at @collegeofcharleston. Visitors are most familiar with our student docents - but may not be as familiar with the behind the scenes activities. Our volunteers are primarily students and retirees, and are responsible for cleaning fossils off, reassembling broken fossils, and producing mounts that keep the fossils safe during long term storage. Geology Junior Suzanne Grantham (top) is currently working on reassembling a fossil dolphin - well, it's actually two dolphins that died near eachother, and their bones became fragmented and the fragments mixed together. (...fun) We have one student researcher at present: Bailey Fallon (bottom), a junior in Biology, who is studying fossil leatherback sea turtles from the Charleston area, and has already had her first research manuscript go through peer review! Next semester Suzanne is considering joining the research team, as is another student, Nathan McCuen - they will be studying South Carolina cetaceans and mosasaurs (respectively).

#Repost @americangeophysicalunion with @get_repost ・・・ To round out women’s History Month, AGU is celebrating the geoscience discoveries and advances made by women. Here’s the second of ten: Inge Lehman discovers Earth’s inner core is solid in 1936, which helps explain how the core generates Earth’s magnetic field. #agu100 #women #womenshistorymonth#womenempowerment #geoscience #science#womeninstem #earth #discovery
#Repost @usinterior with @get_repost ・・・ One of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes in North America, Canyon de Chelly National Monument is a place of natural beauty and living legends. A dry climate, sheltering cliffs and the watchful eyes of local residents protect the distinctive architecture, artifacts and rock imagery. Completely within the Navajo Nation in #Arizona, the park’s signature vista is looking down at Spider Rock, an 825-foot-tall sandstone spire that got its name from the Navajo story of the Spider Woman. Rangers and #Navajo guides share these stories to connect visitors to this special place.
