JIRP presence at the AGU meeting

Well, as part of limiting my travel I don’t usually go to the American Geophysical Union Annual Fall Meeting, but its always worth spending a little slice of time seeing what people are talking about in one of the biggest (maybe it is the biggest?) earth sciences meeting world-wide. Plus this year AGU is celebrating their 100 year anniversary, so there are some additional events and features.

The Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP), often encourages students to present their summer research projects at AGU. For example, in 2018 JIRP students/staff/teachers were involved in presenting 3 posters about the ice field:

This year, content from core JIRP staff and scientists is in the field of diversity and the exciting question of what the Taku glacier will do next:

Recent changes at the Taku Glacier terminus (below in 2019) can be seen in a comparison here.

The 2019 student cohort present their research project findings in team or individual posters:

And our research partners, to whom we provide logistical support present their findings in several presentations, a couple of which I have included here:

Apologies if I missed something major, but theres a lot to look through – please let me know if you have an abstract that should be linked here because its related to your activities with JIRP!

About lindsey

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
