1999 Fall Meeting: Press conferences and special events

thout an eruption, unleashing massive avalanches of rock and mud that can devastate entire cities. Scientists are studying how to assess the risk factor for catastrophic collapse of specific volcanoes and are devising mitigation strategies.

FAST
Tuesday afternoon. This will be the first ever press conference on science results from the FAST satellite. It focuses on two phenomena: an invisible upward moving aurora (as contrasted with the "normal" visible aurora caused by downward moving electrons) and data supporting a new theory of Earth's natural radio broadcasts.

1999 Earthquakes in Izmit, Turkey; Taiwan; and Hector Mine, California
Wednesday morning. These quakes occurred too recently to have been included in planning for this meeting, and special extra sessions were organized soon after each occurred. We will hear the latest results from scientists who were on the scene.

Digital Library to Serve Earth Science Education
Wednesday noon. This initiative, unveiled at Fall Meeting, will fundamentally change the way students learn, the way instructors teach, and researchers interact. It will provide rapid and high quality information in digital formats on any aspect of the Earth system.

Early Results From New Earth Observing Satellites
Wednesday afternoon. Project scientists from NASA's Landsat 7 and QuickScat and Denmark's Oersted will discuss major breakthroughs offered by new remote sensing data and scientific advances made by combining long-term records of satellite images. Landsat 7 has helped scientists study recently erupting volcanoes and recent floods in North Carolina. QuickScat, covering nearly 90 percent of the world's oceans daily, provides important information on hurricane formation. Oersted, Denmark's first satellite, maps the Earth's magnetic field in order to explore the Earth's core and the interaction of the magnetosphere with solar winds.
