Registration for AGU23 is Open

Registration and Housing for the AGU23 meeting (11-15 December in San Francisco) is open! The early bird registration discount is available through 2 November 2023 - so be sure to act soon to get this discounted rate! You can register here.

When you register for the meeting, please consider taking a few extra minutes to donate to the Biogeosciences Section here. Donations support a wide range of activities, including travel and caregiver awards, which help increase diversity, equity and inclusion at the AGU23 meeting, as well as OSPA awards to honor student presenters, early career workshops, networking activities and more!

A contribution of $50 or more makes you an individual donor, which qualifies you for an incentive program that helps increase funds available for each section. More specifically, starting at 5% participation from primary affiliated Biogeosciences members, AGU will give our section additional funds for section-based activities. The greater the participation, the greater the contribution from AGU to our section.
An Update From the Soils Committee

The Soils Processes and Critical Zone Technical Committee is pleased to give an update on activities and events related to soil processes and the critical zone at AGU. Please see the newsletter posted on the AGU Biogeosciences website here
