American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting 2015

14 – 18 December 2015, San Francisco, USA

With nearly 24.000 participants the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting is known to be the largest and most important Earth and space science conference in the world. It is a five days long conference with more then 1700 sessions and more than 23.000 oral and poster presentations, underlining the broad range of scientific fields, which are represented at the AGU. I presented a poster with the title “36Chlorine exposure dating of a terminal moraine in the Galicica Mountains, Macedonia” in the session “Development and Application of Quaternary Geochronological Methods”. This presentation gave me the chance to discuss my presented data with other researchers, most of which being far more experienced in their research field. Now, back in Cologne, I profit from many fruitful discussions, which help me to interpret my data. In addition, numerous oral and poster presentations in my session gave me the chance to inform about ideas of other researchers, which deal with the same or similar methods and problems. Besides the presentations, which were closely related to my research topic, several other sessions provided a great opportunity to inform about new methods, theories and applications.


Also participating in several non-scientific events, such as ICDP-town hall meeting or the so called German Social by the DFG provided a nice possibility to get in touch with important people from different scientific fields and countries.


I thank the GSGS for funding my attendance at the AGU.
