ESPA Deltas at AGU

With nearly 24,000 attendees, American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting (14-18 Dec 2015, San Francisco, USA) is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The Meeting brings together the entire Earth and space science community for discussions of emerging trends and the latest research. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edge science, much of which has not yet been published. The meeting offers a mix of oral and poster presentations, a broad range of general sessions, formal and informal networking and career advancement opportunities, and packed exhibit hall showcasing new and relevant research tools and services that could help scientists and researchers streamline their work.

The latest research from the ESPA Deltas ( project will be presented in the 'Sustainable Deltas: Multidisciplinary Analyses of Complex Systems' session at the meeting, which sits in the Global Environmental Change section.

The ESPA Deltas project is represented by:
• Attila Lazar (University of Southampton, UK) oral presentation on 'An integrated framework to assess plausible future livelihood and poverty changes in deltas: an application to coastal Bangladesh'
• Robert Nicholls (University of Southampton, UK) oral presentation on 'Ecosystem services and livelihoods in deltaic environments'
• Paul Whitehead (University of Oxford, UK) oral presentation on 'Climate Variability over India and Bangladesh from the Perturbed UK Met Office Hadley Model: Impacts on Flow and Nutrient Fluxes in the Ganges Delta System'
• Derek Clarke (University of Southampton, UK) poster presentation on 'Salinity Impacts on Agriculture and Groundwater in Delta Regions'
• Frances Dunn (University of Southampton, UK) poster presentation on 'Modelling Multidecadal Fluvial Sediment Fluxes to Deltas Under Future Environmental Change'

As well as providing a huge platform for dissemination of latest work, the AGU Fall Meeting provides researchers, with insights and updates on the latest scientific research, and the opportunity to network with both luminaries and up-and-coming talent across disciplines.
