AUGURY

A week in New Orleans

This year, the American Geophysical Union Fall meeting took place in New Orleans from the 11th to the 17th of December 2017. On Monday morning, Mélanie and Maëlis presented their posters about net rotation and dynamic topography in mantle convection models with StagYY, respectively.

Mélanie also co-convened an afternoon oral session on the effects of mantle convection dynamics on surface observables.

The AGU was also the perfect time to work with scientists from elsewhere and to discuss the group’s recent research progress: Mélanie met with collaborators to discuss her flat-slab subduction models and Maëlis presented her ongoing work on the lateral motion of mantle plumes.
