The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is accepting abstracts for the 2023 AGU Fall Meeting. This hybrid meeting will take place 11-15 December 2023 in San Francisco, California and online.

The following sessions are accepting abstracts:

SESSION ED024: From the Field and Lab to Students - Connections That Spread the Word About Cutting-Edge Geoscience Research
Conveners: Janet Warburton, Margaret Anne Holzer, Jonathan Pazol, David Thomas Thesenga, and Jennifer Bault

Science is dynamic, and K-12 textbooks often struggle to keep up with the latest research and innovations. Connecting students with the latest geoscience research and data is an effective way to keep them engaged and motivated in their learning. Both formal and informal educators play a crucial role in bridging the gap. This session will share experiences, successes, and challenges in geoscience collaborations between educators and researchers, including approaches to incorporating geoscience data in learning. These collaborations can take many forms, such as Research Experiences for Teachers (RETs), educator workshops, and broader-impact collaborations, to name a few. Through these partnerships, educators can enhance their knowledge of the latest geoscience research and bring it into their classrooms, while geoscience researchers can benefit from educators' knowledge of teaching methods and classroom dynamics. Researcher-educator partners are encouraged to submit abstracts together to showcase the benefits and challenges of their collaborative efforts.

SESSION H038: Citizen Science in the Hydrosphere - Engaging Community Observers and Integrating Crowdsourced Data into Remote Sensing and Modeled Products
Conveners: Keith Steven Jennings, Monica M. Arienzo, Maria Vernet, and Christopher D. Arp

It can be exceedingly difficult or costly to research, monitor, and model hydrologic phenomena across space and time, challenging our ability to quantify water fluxes, states, and properties. Citizen science projects, where community observers provide measurements and reports on the quantities of interest, offer an alternative, inclusive way of collecting, integrating, and analyzing data. Such projects foster a deeper understanding of hydrologic processes while building connections between professional researchers and the general public.

This session welcomes proposals covering any facet of a citizen science project in hydrologic and aquatic sciences, including but not limited to:

  • How to develop successful citizen science projects
  • Techniques to effectively activate, engage, train, and retain community observers and measure the effectiveness thereof
  • Best practices for sharing project results with community observers and other stakeholders
  • Ground-truthing remote sensing and model products using crowdsourced data
  • Assimilating crowdsourced data into model or remote sensing products
