Next week, the city of San Francisco will be overrun with nerds. More specifically,more than 22,000 geophysicists, oceanographers, geologists, seismologists, meteorologists, and volcanologists will be descending upon the Bay Area to attend the 2013 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting.

If you are among the thousands of attendees, you are probably (like me) overwhelmed by the plethora in sessions, speakers, posters, and mixers. In an effort to force myself to look at the schedule well in advance of the actual meeting, I’m sharing my picks for must-sees at the AGU meeting below.

Note! I’m co-chairing “Managing Ecological Data for Effective Use and Reuse” along with Amber Budden of DataONE and Karthik Ram of rOpenSci. Prepare for a great set of talks about DMPTool, rOpenSci, DataONE, and others.
