Short summary
The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is an Earth and space science professional society. Research conducted by AGU members ranges from the Earth’s deep interior to the outer planets of our solar system. However, little research exists on the AGU meeting itself. We apply network analysis and scientometrics to 17 years of AGU Fall Meetings to examine the network structure of the AGU and explore how data science can facilitate better scientific communication and collaboration.
