Dear ecologgers,
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for a Pop-Up session at the 
Geophysical Union (AGU) 2016 Fall Meeting. The Pop-Up sessions provide a 
platform for 
students and early career scientists to share their ideas, innovations and 
visions during 5 
minute TED-style presentations. Previous editions have drawn a broad audience 
from all 
scientific disciplines and career stages. This year, there are two Pop-Up 
Water Sciences: Innovations, Challenges and Future Directions
This session provides young scientists the opportunity to give 5 minute 
presentations on their 
future vision(s) of water sciences.  Presentations should strive to go beyond 
one’s research to 
address broader issues. Some examples of questions that might be answered in 
this session 
- How can we advance water sciences using the ever-growing pool of accessible 
- How do we manage the Food-Water-Energy Nexus under a changing climate?
- “Go big or go home” or “It’s the little details that are vital”?
Social Dimensions of Geosciences
This session offers students an opportunity to share success stories, discuss 
challenges, and 
calls for future directions related to the social dimensions of geosciences in 
5 minute pitches. 
Topics may include both the inward- and the outward-looking needs for the AGU 
Inward-looking topics may include networking skills, work-life balance, 
research, and mentorship experiences and opportunities. Outward-looking topics 
may include 
use-inspired science, community participation, science communication, 
environmental policy, 
and inclusive research communities.
Note, there’s no submission fee! The deadline to submit is August 3 and 
submissions can be 
made at  For 
inspiration and 
notable examples check the Pop-Up repository on YouTube (see link below). The 
Pop-Ups are 
organized by the AGU Hydrology Section Student Subcommittee (H3S) in 
cooperation with the 
Young Hydrologic Society!
We also want to highlight an alternative session—Sympathy for the Data: Novel 
approaches to 
the art of data visualization—which will take place as lighting talks or a 
panel discussion. For 
more information, please see the session description:

We look forward seeing your Pop-Up in San Francisco!

All the best,
