Current Meetings


Fall AGU
San Francisco, CA
Dec. 5-9, 2005

UT Jackson School of Geosciences
will be at the AGU 2005 Fall Meeting!

UT Austin will be represented at AGU's 2005 Fall Meeting by members of its staff, students, and alumni. JSG will have a booth in the Academic Showcase.

The Marine Geoscience Data Management System, a collaborative project between Lamont-Doherty Earth Laboratory and UTIG, will host exhibitor's booth #425. The mgDMS is an integrated system, providing uniform access to a variety of marine geoscience data types collected throughout the global oceans.

Friends, alumni! Join us for lunch on Wednesday, Dec. 7th.
