AGU SPRING MEETING
EDITORS: Twenty scientists from Stanford University will give presentations at the 2000 Spring Meeting of the American Geophysical Union to be held May 30 - June 3 at the Washington Convention Center, 900 Ninth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. For your convenience, we are providing abstracts of the Stanford presentations. Eight papers focus on space sciences (including Mars, Mercury, magnetic fields and solar research). Five concentrate on earthquakes and tectonics (including the 1999 Turkish earthquake and the New Madrid fault in the U.S. Midwest). Two papers look at global climate issues, and a special session examines the history of Antarctica's ice sheet.
A complete list of Stanford abstracts is available through the AGU website.
