Heads-Up for Familiar Faces at Fall Meetings

Scientists of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) will be out in force at two of the largest annual meetings of Earth scientists (combined attendance of more than 15,500): the Geological Society of America (GSA) meeting in Denver (Oct. 27-30) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in San Francisco (Dec. 6-10). CMGP authors contributed at least 17 abstracts for the GSA meeting and 33 abstracts for AGU.

Wylie Poag presided at a GSA session titled "Chesapeake Bay Impact Structure: Geology, Geophysics, and Geohydrology of America's Largest Crater." An AGU session titled "Coastal Geology of the Carolinas: Linking the Shelf and Shore" has been convened by Bill Schwab and Rob Thieler, among others.

Other exciting topics covered by CMGP scientists at the meetings include Mississippi Delta history, Big Sur landslides, foram hitchhikers, the Puerto Rico Trench, the Great Blue Hole in Belize, Gulf of Mexico gas hydrates, ocean-circulation and sediment-transport models, carbon dioxide sequestration, estuary sedimentation, paleoseacliffs, tsunami models, metals in corals, and submarine avalanches. Check the lists of "Publications Submitted for Director's Approval" in the September and October issues of Sound Waves for information on most AGU abstracts, and the August and September issues for GSA abstracts.
