Early Career Committee

The AGU Biogeosciences Section Early Career Committee is excited to announce Caregiver Conference Support Grants for the 2022 Fall Meeting. The purpose of these grants is to support student and early career members affiliated with the Biogeosciences section who face challenges in attending the Fall Meeting (either in person or online) due to expenses directly related to their responsibilities as the primary caregiver for a child or other dependent. 


Seeing Science: Visual Strategies for Dealing with the SciComm Reality that Facts Don't Work (Alone) 


September 20, 1230-1400 ET

We know that visuals are compelling enough to dominate our decision-making, but how do we leverage that for effective, inclusive SciComm? In this interactive workshop, participants will explore cross-disciplinary and multicultural examples, interactive activities, and foundational best practices in graphic design which can help them productively use visuals to communicate science. 

Speaker: Bethann Gerramon Merkle, MFA is an award-winning artist/communicator fascinated with science and sustainability.
