The AGU fall meeting brings together over 24,000 researchers from around the world covering disciplines of the Earth and space sciences. As the conference marks its Centennial, it will celebrate the past and inspire the future by bringing together the people, the imagination, and the science that will ignite the next hundred years to make our planet safer, cleaner, and more sustainable.

AGU 2019 sessions bring together the IIASA network in San Francisco by featuring IIASA researchers, alumni, and collaborators. The agenda will highlight rapid developments in science, new approaches to observing our Earth and beyond, the introduction of new data streams, growing demand for accessible science, the expansion of convergent science, and more.
