All our stories from the AGU 2014 Fall Meeting

By on December 19, 2014

The American Geophysical Union’s 2014 Fall Meeting in San Francisco wraps up today. We didn’t make it, but we did get a chance to talk to a few of the scientists about their posters and presentations in the weeks before the event. Here’s a roundup those stories:
