NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) team wants to see you at the NASA Booth (#535) at the 2016 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, December 12 through 16, in San Francisco, California! From Hyperwall presentations to Flash Talks to free NASA calendars (and lots of other resources), the NASA Booth in the Moscone Convention Center’s Exhibit Hall will be a hub of activity throughout the meeting.

The NASA Booth in the AGU Exhibit Hall is your one-stop location for information about NASA missions, programs, and data, along with Hyperwall presentations and Flash Talks. NASA image.

Representatives from NASA’s EOSDIS will be on-hand to answer your questions about NASA Earth science data products, services, and tools. In addition, numerous hands-on demonstrations at the booth will show you how to visualize global precipitation data, use EOSDIS Worldview, experience climate data with virtual reality, and more. As at previous AGU meetings, the innovative NASA Hyperwall will be used for formal 15-minute presentations along with short, seven-minute “Flash Talks.”

This year’s scheduled Hyperwall presentations include Explaining the Northern Lights; Earth Observations Supporting Wildfire Management; Ionosphere and Space Weather; Visualizing Earth’s Rapidly Changing Sea Ice Cover; The Habitability of Terrestrial Planets; The Hole Ozone Story; and Weather and Climate from Space. Scheduled Flash Talk topics include NASA Atmospheric Science Data: Easier than you Think; Flying Small Spacecraft Throughout the Solar System; and Solar Probe Plus: A Mission to Touch the Sun. For a complete schedule of Hyperwall presentations, Flash Talks, and hands-on demonstrations please see the online Schedule of Events at the NASA Booth.

The NASA Booth also will be the location for special Hyperwall presentations given by the winners of the 2016 AGU Data Visualization and Storytelling Competition, which is funded by a NASA grant. These presentations take place from Noon to 1pm on Tuesday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 14.

Outside of the NASA Booth, more than 100 sessions, posters, and in-booth presentations during the meeting will highlight NASA Earth science data, products, and applications.

The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world, with more than 20,000 attendees expected. This year’s AGU science program features more than 1,700 sessions, 23,000 oral and poster presentations, and 50 formal and informal networking and career advancement opportunities. Nearly 300 exhibitors will join the NASA Booth in the AGU Exhibit Hall.
