Once a year, in December, a glorious tradition occurs. Friends come together, talk about their lives, and celebrate each other’s successes. I’m talking of course about the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting (#AGU16), a time when San Francisco opens it’s arms to over 25,000 geoscientists. This type of meeting might sound like a bad dream, but to others, this week of research talks, meetings, and poster presentations is the highlight of the year. Today is day four and this morning I was not able to concentrate so well, so I took a walk through the Mascone Center. I found the ‘SKETCH YOUR SCIENCE’ wall, became inspired, and drew this picture to explain a bit about my research interests. Sitting and drawing for a few minutes was exactly what I needed, and a friendly person came by and photographed the above image and sent it to me! Thanks!
