IARC science at AGU 2022

Over thirty IARC researchers and students are participating in the 2022 American Geophysical Union fall meeting held both virtually and in Chicago. We hope to connect with our colleagues and friends during the following presentations and events. For those in Chicago, please also stop by the University of Alaska Fairbanks booth (number 2137) which is co-hosted by IARC science communications team. 

In addition to giving and convening talks and posters, IARC researchers are participating in a press conference for NOAA’s Arctic Report Card.

For updates during the meeting, follow IARC on TwitterFacebook or Instagram. To learn about AGU activities across UAF follow the #UAFxAGU hashtag on social media platforms. For any questions or suggestions, please contact Heather McFarland.
