Photo Friday: The Annual Meeting of the American Geophysical Union

This week marked the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the world’s largest organization of Earth and space scientists. It brought together over 24,000 of the brightest scientific minds in New Orleans, Louisiana, to discuss groundbreaking research from every field and opportunities for a more sustainable future. Unsurprisingly, glaciers played a prominent role at the meeting, including during their own glaciology poster presentation.

This Photo Friday, enjoy some of the photos from #AGU17.
