Press Events At Spring Meeting


10:30 AM. The geodynamo: how does Earth produce its magnetic field? Press conference. Recent advances on many fronts have produced insights into one of the largest unsolved problems in geophysics: how does Earth produce its internal magnetic field? Dr. Gary A. Glatzmaier of the Los Alamos National Laboratory will discuss the latest computer simulations and direct observations, leading to improved models and more accurate predictions of conditions inside the Earth. (Meeting sessions on the geodynamo are scheduled on Thursday.)

12:15 PM. The Mars Global Surveyor Mission. Press conference on the latest news from Mars, some of it so fresh that it has not yet been collected as of this writing. Dr. Arden Albee, MGS Project Scientist at the California Institute of Technology, will discuss the first findings of the Science Phasing Orbit portion of MGS. Every 11 hours, during close approach to the planet, an array of instruments gathers data in an effort to determine the dynamics of the Martian atmosphere, evidence of past climates, tectonic evolution, and the possibility of life. These results will help scientists prepare for the 1998 and 2001 Mars orbiter, lander, and rover missions. (Held in conjunction with today's all-day session on MGS and Thursday evening's public lecture.)

5:30 PM. AGU Honors Ceremony and Reception. A group of distinguished scientists and a science writer will receive prestigious AGU awards. This event is open to registered media representatives. Boston Marriott Hotel, Copley Place. Followed immediately by:
