AGU Fall Meeting 2017

This year, the AGU Fall Meeting moved from its traditional location in San Francisco to New Orleans. As usual, the meeting was a wonderful occasion to catch up with former classmates and colleagues, and hear about all the new science!

This year, I was the co-chair for the CYGNSS session A11F, Early On-Orbit Results of the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System, together with Chris Ruf. The poster session was a great way for all the people using and working on CYGNSS to chat about their respective results.

In addition, I gave an oral presentation entitled Effects of dew deposition on transpiration and carbon uptake in leaves that presented the results of a collaboration with Sally Thompson‘s lab at UC Berkeley.

Finally, I had the opportunity to attend the Ecohydrology Technical Committee and to help out with the Hydrology Business Meeting. Both events were great opportunities to meet new people in my field, and I’m hoping to get more and more involved with the hydrology community at AGU in the future.


AGU Fall Meeting 2014

I just presented my work on foliar uptake in Colocasia esculenta at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.  If you didn’t get a chance to stop by my poster, you can have a look at the ePosters uploaded on the AGU Fall Meeting website. Just click on the links below!

Cynthia Gerlein-Safdi, Craig Sinkler and Kelly CaylorH31G-0684 – Modeling Foliar Uptake in Colocasia Esculenta Using High Resolution Maps of Leaf Water Isotopes, Poster,  Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 08:00 AM – 12:20 PM, Moscone West, Poster Hall.

My summer intern Craig will also be presenting a poster focused on the methodology we used to map isotopes in the leaves:

AGU Fall Meeting 2013

I presented two posters at the AGU Fall Meeting 2013, held in San Francisco this past December.

My first poster presented my work on the evolution of vapor and rain isotopic composition during 17 rain storms in Summer 2012 in Central Kenya.

See the poster.

The second poster presented my current project with Adam Wolf on plant physiology  under drought and water theft. I presented the first results of our rainout experiment conducted last summer at Silas Little Experimental Forest in NJ. The experiment will be reconducted in Summer 2014.
