SETx-UIFL Members Joining the AGU23

SETx-UIFL members joined thousands of other scientists at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual meeting in San Francisco, CA. AGU meeting is one of the world’s largest scientific conferences which convenes more than 25,000 attendees from 100+ countries each year. It serves as a platform for researchers to connect and share their research on a diverse range of Earth and space science. This year, the AGU23 meeting took place 11-15 December 2023 in San Francisco, CA.

San Francisco, CA. Our SETx-UIFL members joins AGU23.

Five SETx-UIFL researchers and three graduate students were accepted to present at the meeting. It’s an exciting time for our members to showcase their hard work over the past year as well as a great opportunity to establish connections throughout the science community.
