The Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in December was well attended by CWI staff.

The team included Prof Andy Baker, A/Prof Bryce Kelly, Dr Martin Andersen, Dr Mark Cuthbert, Dr Hamid Roshan, Dr Hoori Ajami, Dr Alessandro Comunian, Dr Sanjeev Jha, Dr Cath Jex, Dr Helen Rutlidge, Mr Landon Halloran, and Mr Kashif Muhmud. The CWI team presented results from their research, funded by the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, the European Union Mare Curie Actions, the Groundwater Education Investment Fund and Australian Research Council Discovery Projects.

Fifteen presentations featuring CWI staff are listed below. AGU members can view ‘EPOSTERS’, and abstracts are available as open access. Both can be downloaded from the AGU Fall Meeting website.
