Cobb lab research at AGU Fall Meeting, 2014

The Cobb lab is well-represented at #AGU2014, with myself, Jessica Moerman, and Pamela Grothe all presenting various aspects of our paleoclimate research. There are also many Cobb lab alumni and affiliates here (see below). 

Below is a list detailing when and where Cobb lab research will be featured:

Me:  "What did the largest volcanic eruption in 2 million years do to
 climate? Stalagmites weigh in."

PP31B-1131Signatures of the Toba super-volcano eruption in Borneo stalagmite geochemistry: a multi-proxy approach (ABSTRACT)
Wednesday, December 17, 201408:00 AM - 12:20 PM Moscone West Poster Hall

*Prospective postdocs and grad students are encouraged to meet me at this poster session PP31B on Wed morning between 8-11am in Moscone West.

**Don't miss the Monday 7:30pm screening of Years of Living Dangerously, Episode 3, featuring yours truly in MW 3002. A post-screening panel will feature myself, Chris Mooney (science writer), Joseph Romm, Heidi Cullen (science advisor, Years), and David Gelber (Executive Producer, Years).
