Media Advisory: 1999 Spring Meeting -- Updated Press Conference Schedule

********************
This advisory updates press conference information in AGU Press Release 99-14 of May 3. It does not repeat the general information for journalists in that document, which may be accessed on the web at http://www.agu.org/sci_soc/prrl/prrl9914.html. The May 3 advisory includes a press registration form, which science writers and PIOs are urged to submit (online, email, or fax) prior to the meeting. For general Spring Meeting information, including accommodations, consult http://www.agu.org/meetings/sm99top.html.

This press conference schedule is subject to further amendment. Should there be any changes, they will be posted in the Press Room at the meeting. We do not anticipate distributing another general advisory prior to the meeting.
