3,500 Earth And Space Scientists To Report Latest Findings At Boston Meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Some 3,500 scientists from around the world will report on and discuss their latest research results in fields ranging from the Earth's central core to the limits of the solar system at the May 26-29 Spring Meeting of the American Geophysical Union in Boston. This will be AGU's first meeting in Boston and several of the scheduled sessions are of particular interest in the area, including those on earthquake hazards in the region, Boston Harbor's recovery experiment, and new approaches to dealing with polluted water sources on Cape Cod.

Some of the information to be presented will be so fresh that it has not yet been collected. This is true of the Mars Global Surveyor, for example, a satellite that has only recently begun its observations of that planet. The latest data will be presented in a public lecture, "Mars: Search for evidence of past climates," on Thursday, May 28, at 7:00 PM in the Hynes Convention Center. The program will also cover plans for the 2001 Mars rover mission, which will sample rocks for evidence of wet conditions and signs of ancient life. Attendees will have an opportunity to put questions to scientists who are leading the investigations.

Another special event is the first Rachel Carson Lecture, possibly the first science lecture series named for a woman. Its theme is cutting edge ocean science. The Rachel Carson Lecturer is Prof. Sallie W. Chisholm of MIT, who will discuss marine ecosystems on Tuesday, May 26, at 4:00 PM, in the Hynes Convention Center. Six other named lectures, covering a range of sciences will also be delivered and are limited to registered meeting participants.

The discussion of Boston's earthquake risks will be part of a series of presentations on earthquake hazards in eastern and central United States the afternoon of Wednesday, May 27.

On Friday afternoon, May 29, ocean scientists w
