AmeriFlux Town Hall at 2020 AGU Fall Meeting
As of this writing in April 2020, scientists in many countries are working under stay-at-home orders. Although the AmeriFlux network has strong virtual connectivity and ecosystem flux research continues apace, 2020 brings a field (and education) season like no other. Therefore, in addition to popular AmeriFlux town hall activities, this year we are adding new activities. For the former, come learn about opportunities for 2021 and news of the network. We will wrap up the first theme year, on Methane, and launch the next. Celebrate successes, like honors to colleagues, funding opportunities, and new data products. Join a conversation with other flux scientists and chart priorities for the AmeriFlux Management Project (AMP). New for this year, we’ll launch activities for mentoring, connecting, and collaborating—which can take place locally or virtually, designed for people at different career levels, experience with fluxes, and locations across the Americas and world. These will include regional mini-workshops and facilitating peer-to-peer mentoring. The town hall will feature short, structured interactions to strengthen and celebrate our connections. This town hall is hosted by AMP and attracts a broad audience of ecologists and Earth scientists, early career and senior, from around the world. See you there!
