CLIVAR-relevant sessions at 2018 AGU Fall Meeting

AGU abstracts

The 2018 AGU Fall Meeting will be held from December 10–14 in Washington, DC. In preparation for the meeting, we have compiled a list of sessions that are relevant to the community and organized by our Panels, Working Groups, and community members. The list of sessions is not intended to be exhaustive but to help digest the collection of the hundreds of sessions and events. The deadline for abstracts is August 1. 

If you would like to have your session included in the list, email Kristan
