H3S-related Activities

Student Conference at the AGU Fall Meeting – We will offer technical activities during the 2015 Student Conference to introduce students to emergent remote sensing and field instrumentation technologies.  Further information (e.g. upcoming workshop opportunities, online resources, etc.) will be broadcast to students via social media.

Pop-Up Sessions – Since the 2013 Fall Meeting the Pop-Ups sessions have provided a platform for early career scientists to share their vision for the future of the water sciences. Due to the success of this event, we are offering a second, special topic Pop-Ups session at the 2015 Fall Meeting.

Pop-Up Talks are exciting sessions organized by H3S. The goal is for students, early career scientists, and anyone interested to give a five-minute “pop-up” talk about how their research impacts society; their vision of the future of geosciences; or their experiences working with diversity initiatives, community engagement, etc.  The Pop-ups will occur in the Student and Early Career Lounge Monday, 10 Dec. through Thursday, 13 Dec. from 16:00 – 18:00.  Pop-Up abstracts do not have a fee and do not count against an attendee’s Fall Meeting scientific program abstract allotment, as pop-up talks are not part of the official scientific program.

We have five sessions this year:

  1. The Role of a Scientist in the 21st Century: Big Ideas for the Next 100 Years and How to Get There
  2. Bridging Science and Policy for Change: Best Practices
  3. Hydrology for Public Good: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Community Engagement
  4. Frontiers in Hydrology: Paths Toward the Next Century in Water Research
  5. Building Communities Through Shared Experiences: Social Dimensions in AGU


Joint Assembly Early Career Hydrologist Night
– The H3S will expand to other AGU-sponsored meetings in 2015. We organized the first Early Career Hydrologist Night at this year’s Joint Assembly meeting, which was a full-evening program.

Social Media and Communication with Hydrology Community – We will increase committee presence on traditional social media platforms to stimulate discussion and broaden access to available resources, which includes Facebook, Twitter, and the Young Hydrologic Society website (youngHS.com). A twitter account (@AGU_H3S) will be used to increase online presence of the subcommittee. Regular interviews with early career hydrologists will be published on the AGU Water Facebook page. Lastly, the H3S is working together with Young Hydrologic Society to archive all recorded Pop-Up presentations.
