The American Geophysical Union Annual Meeting in San Francisco


This year we’re sending a team to the American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual meeting in San Francisco to represent CH2M HILL Polar Services (CPS). The AGU meeting represents the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting nearly 20,000 earth and space scientists, educators, students, and policy makers.

The meeting “showcases current scientific theory focused on discoveries that will benefit humanity and ensure a sustainable future for our planet,” according to the AGU website.

It’s our privilege to support a wide range of fascinating work, and it’s always fun to see some of “our” scientists presenting their work.

At the meeting, PFS field risk manager Allen O’Bannon will talk about field safety and bears in the Arctic on Monday, 3 December, at noon. If you’re around, drop by the Arctic Community Meeting Room at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, 4th Floor, Pacific Room J.

CPS is hosting a booth in the exhibition hall, (Booth 5439) which will be populated by scientists and research support experts. If you’ve got questions about working in the Arctic, stop by.

We will also showcase our first annual CPS calendar, Arctic Visions. This collaborative work features winners in our inaugural photo contest, some of whom are members of the U.S. NSF’s research program in the Arctic, and some who are new friends. Featuring images ranging from the ethereal to the precise the calendar documents many aspects of life and scientific research in the Arctic.

It is also free.

We are looking forward to seeing old friends and new next week.
