If you’re heading to the 2017 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in New Orleans, LA, be sure to stop by the NASA District (also known as the NASA Booth, #1645) in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Designed with a New Orleans-themed layout, the avenues and rues (the French word for streets) of the NASA Booth are the prime locations for learning about the latest NASA mission accomplishments, data products, and discoveries (and, of course, where you can see a demo of all the exciting new Worldview features or learn how to quickly find NASA Earth observing data using Earthdata Search). NASA and the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) team have put together a schedule of events you won’t want to miss!

Representatives from EOSDIS Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) will be available throughout the meeting along the Rue Data & Technology, Rue Sun Earth, and Rue Live Demo to answer questions about NASA Earth observing data and show you how to discover, access, and use these data. In addition, the EOSDIS Flash Talk series returns with short, seven-minute presentations about new technologies, science mission results, and innovative ways NASA Earth observing data are being utilized. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in daily hands-on demonstrations and learn how to maximize your use of NASA Earth observing data.

NASA Booth schedule

The NASA Booth is your one-stop location to meet the scientists, engineers, and experts behind cutting-edge NASA missions and projects. Image courtesy of the NASA Science Communications Support Office.

The innovative NASA Hyperwall (located between the Avenue Interconnected and the Avenue Inspiration) will be used for both Flash Talks and formal 15-minute presentations every day of the meeting. Some of the more than 50 scheduled Hyperwall presentations include Space Weather, NASA Response to Hurricanes, Future Capabilities for Planetary Exploration, and Measuring Mangroves from Space: No More Swamp Feet. For a complete schedule of presentations, Flash Talks, and hands-on demonstrations please see the Schedule of Events at the NASA Booth.

Winners of the 2017 AGU Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition also will use the Hyperwall to show off their award-winning projects. These special presentations are scheduled from Noon to 1pm on Tuesday, December 12 and Wednesday, December 13.

The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world, with more than 24,000 attendees from more than 100 countries expected to attend. While traditionally held in San Francisco, the Fall Meeting takes place in New Orleans this year (and will be held in Washington, D.C. in 2018) due to construction at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. This year’s AGU program features more than 20,000 oral and poster presentations, a broad range of keynote lectures, formal and informal networking and career advancement opportunities, and scientific field trips around New Orleans and the region. Nearly 300 exhibitors will join the NASA Booth in the AGU Exhibit Hall.

For a schedule of planned NASA exhibit events at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting, please see the Schedule of Events at the NASA Booth. For general meeting information and a complete schedule of all events and activities, check out the AGU Fall Meeting website.
