Robin Bell offers remarks at Monday evening’s #Diversity and #Inclusion Reception, encouraging members to use the energy of #Centennial (and the many centennial opportunities, including Celebrate 100 Grants) to continue the work needed to make strides in the #geosciences in diversity and inclusion, setting the stage for a new era. #AGU18 #AGU100
I love trying new restaurants when I travel for conferences, and #AGU18 in DC is no exception. My friend and I stopped in Chinatown for a late dinner (we conferenced for 12 straight hours!!) before heading home for the night. Tomorrow will be another busy day of science 👌 — #guestgrammer Gabi @gserratomarks
Some moments are precious. It was a really nice time spent at the AGU headquarter, another "home" in a distant city.

Visit to AGU headquarter was really satisfying. It is a Hi Tech net zero building with pure sense of aesthetics and beauty.

Today’s plenary speaker was Lisa Jackson, VP of Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives at @apple. She also spent 20 years at the US EPA, including a few years as the EPA Administrator. At Apple, she has focused on reducing the need for mining and using more renewable energy.

Her talk was hopeful and inspirational, especially because she talked about how pro-climate policies are compatible with economic growth. Her work is an example of how a company can use science-based policy to innovate and create climate-friendly solutions. “Solving climate change starts at home, but it can’t stop there,” she said. 
What science means to Lisa:
“Through innovation, we can create smart solutions for the future, leaving the planet better than we found it.” — Gabi @gserratomarks .

Meet an AGU attendee: Zoe Aarons!

Zoe is a senior undergraduate student at Bowdoin College. It’s her first AGU Fall Meeting, and she says that, so far, it’s “really cool!” She’ll be presenting on bamboo coral geochemistry in a poster session on Friday morning.

Do you remember your first AGU?

Hi, I’m Gabi (@gserratomarks), the second volunteer #guestgrammer during the Fall Meeting! I’m excited to share my #AGU18 experience with all of you! The first poster session just started, so hundreds or even thousands of scientists are currently standing in front of poster boards, talking about their research. Tag @americangeophysicalunion in pictures you take at the meeting!
Good morning AGU. Officially the meeting has started and the registration queue is heavily crowded.
