LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

2 • 2008 ANNUAL REPORT

was a year of recommitments, endings, and

2008 new beginnings. AGU has recommitted itself

to the excellence that has made AGU the preeminent scientific

society in the Earth and space sciences with the best journals

and the best meetings. AGU’s success in these and other areas

is directly attributable to the dedication of its volunteers and

the support of great headquarters staff.

Success abounded in 2008. AGU published more research

articles than in any prior year. Journals improved timeliness

by as much as 10%. The AGU Fall Meeting boasted a record number of

attendees (16,272), and AGU sponsored an unprecedented eight Chapman

Conferences. Public Affairs events hosted 300 scientist participants, and

Public Information organized and conducted 37 press conferences.

In 2008, Fred Spilhaus, AGU’s executive director for 39 years, announced

that he would step aside. We are deeply grateful to Fred for his nearly 40

years of extraordinary leadership. He has achieved much, and his efforts

have greatly contributed to AGU becoming the strong organization that it

is today.

Even before Fred’s announcement, AGU had begun to focus on the future.

The Future Focus Task Force (FFTF), a 15-member committee, is advising

the AGU Council on three areas to strengthen AGU’s ability to execute

our strategic plan. The FFTF, whose activities continue into 2009, is taking

a broad look at the Union’s structure and governance, the alignment of

resources and the activities supported by these resources, and the capacities

we need to develop to achieve our mission and long-term goals while

maintaining ourselves as a preeminent scientific society.

By helping to clarify where the Union intends to go and what leadership

characteristics are needed to get us there, the FFTF is helping prepare for

the succession in headquarters leadership so that the best candidate will

be selected for AGU’s next executive director. To help us in our planning

process, the FFTF got input from students, early-career scientists, non-

U.S. members, Council members, focus group and committee chairs, and

past presidents about what might increase membership relevance and

expectations of AGU to strengthen outreach and communications.

Building on all of these strengths, AGU’s future looks strong, exciting, and

vibrant.

—Tim Grove, President, AGU

MEETINGS

AGU sponsored four major meetings and held a

record eight Chapman Conferences in 2008. The

Meetings Program is supported by a host of member

volunteers performing the duties of program

committee members, conveners, and presiders.

Providing a high-quality scientific program and

superb meeting services for participants is the first

priority of the Meetings Committee. In addition to

the scientific sessions, section events, AGU Council

activities, an Editor’s event, and the AGU Honors

program are conducted at the Joint Assembly

and AGU Fall Meeting.

Sixteen percent of attendees of Joint Assembly were

students, and 19% were from the outside the United

States. The Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting

was sponsored by a number of scientific organizations

from Australia, Asia, China, and Taiwan. The

program was designed around topics common to

the western Pacific region. About 40% of the attendees

were from Australia, and 25% were from

the United States.

The Ocean Sciences meeting is a joint meeting between

AGU, the American Society of Limnology

and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography

Society (TOS). ASLO was responsible for organizing

the meeting in 2008.

AGU Fall Meeting, the premier meeting in the geophysical

sciences community, had a record number

of attendees. AGU Fall Meeting programs feature

a full spectrum of topics covering the latest geophysical

information. The 2008 AGU Fall Meeting

had 15% more attendees than the 2007 meeting.

About 92% of the attendees registered for more

than 1 day. Students made up about 24% of the

participants at 2008 AGU Fall Meeting, and about

27% of the attendees were from outside the United

States. Countries that had more than 400 attendees

included Japan, France, Germany, and Canada.

A total of 11,002 papers were scheduled as poster

presentations at the meeting. AGU Fall Meeting

presenters are known for producing and presenting

high-quality posters in a setting conducive to

networking with colleagues.

PUBLIC INFORMATION

AGU promotes public understanding and awareness of current scientific knowledge about the Earth and

solar system through its Public Information program. The program disseminates information primarily

by means of the mass media, mainly in the form of press releases, and press conferences and other press

services at AGU-sponsored meetings. The program also encourages improved science communication by

means of journalism awards, communications training for scientists, and other approaches.

In 2008, the Public Information program

• Served 195 journalists and communications officers

at the AGU Fall Meeting with press conferences

and other media services.

• Organized and conducted 37 press conferences

on scientific and policy developments.

• Sponsored two American Association

for the Advancement

of Science (AAAS) Mass Media

Fellows (young scientists learning

science communication

skills by working as summer

science reporters): Jonathon

Hickman at WOSU-AM, Co- Brian F. Johnson

lumbus, Ohio; and Brian F. Johnson at National

Public Radio, Washington, D.C.

• Awarded two journalism awards for outstanding

reporting: Richard Smith won the Walter Sullivan

Award for Excellence in Science Journal-

PUBLIC AFFAIRS

AGU’s Public Affairs program provides public

policy outreach, education, and information. The

program brings AGU member scientists and legislators

together to ensure that the best possible

Earth and space science is used in the policy-making

process.

In 2008, Public Affairs facilitated the congressional

visits of 31 AGU members. The AGU members

came from 16 states, including Alabama, Arizona,

California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia,

Maryland, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico.,

New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.

They met with advisers to 27 senators and 21 representatives,

including Senators Barbara Boxer, Kay

Bailey Hutchison, Hillary Clinton, Robert P. Casey

Jr., and John McCain. On the House side, they talked

with advisers to Representatives Rush Holt, Chet

Margaret Munro won the David Perlman Award

for Excellence in Science Journalism–News for

reporting on the collapse of an enormous Arctic

ice shelf in a Canadian newspaper article.

• Provided science communication training to 73

scientists in collaboration with the National Science

Foundation and the AAAS.

• Provided Web delivery of high-quality audio

and visuals of 41 press conference presentations

to off-site journalists.

• Continued annual support for production of

television spots related to geophysical sciences

by the American Institute of Physics program

called “Discoveries and Breakthroughs Inside

Science.”


PUBLIC AFFAIRS, continued

Edwards, Dennis Rehberg, and Anna Eshoo. The goal of these visits was to talk about the impact of Earth

and space science on each legislator’s district and to offer expertise. AGU also cosponsored four briefings,

which brought expert scientists to Washington to speak to congressional members and staff. Funded in part

by 1301 donations to the Capitol Cause Program, these briefings were on climate change, natural hazards,

and energy issues. Among the presenters were David Applegate, Senior Science Advisor for Earthquake &

Geologic Hazards, USGS; Ralph Cicerone, President of the National Academy of Sciences and former AGU

President; and Tom Wigley, a senior scientist in the Climate and Global Dynamics Division of NCAR.

AGU members were given multiple opportunities to hone their communications skills during workshops

with experienced science communicators. At AGU meetings, 290 scientists participated in a workshop on

communicating with Congress, a Congressional Science Fellowship and Mass Media Fellowship luncheon,

and a daylong workshop on communicating science.

The Union sponsored its 31st Congressional Science Fellow, Maggie Walser, an atmospheric chemist from

the University of California, Irvine. Walser was selected by AGU’s Committee on Public Affairs from a pool

of 25 applicants. She is serving her 1-year fellowship on the staff of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources

Committee.

EDUCATION AND CAREER SERVICES

AGU’s Education and Career Services program is responsible for supporting the growth of a diverse group

of excellent Earth and space scientists to meet the needs of society and promote scientific literacy worldwide.

Students represent 19% of the membership, and it is vitally important that at their first AGU meeting

they experience being part of the scientific community. The AGU Student Breakfast was initiated in 2001

with this in mind. Elected Union and Section leaders talk informally with students about Section and

Union activities and governance. The breakfast drew more than 300 students in 2008. A Career Luncheon,

also held at the AGU Fall Meeting and attended by 200 students, provided an opportunity to interact with

senior scientists working in corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies. In addition, 218 Outstanding

Student Paper awards were given for presentations in 2008.

The Student Travel Grant program makes it possible for students to present their research at an AGU meeting

for the first time. In 2008, 124 students received travel grants to attend the Ocean Sciences Meeting,

Joint Assembly, and the AGU Fall Meeting. This represents an increase 3 times the number of travel grants

awarded in the past. Two thirds of the grants were given to U.S. students. The rest were awarded to students

in Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, Argentina, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland,

Denmark, Turkey, Czech Republic, Russian Federation, India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Israel, Australia, and

New Zealand. Funding in 2008 was provided by Exxon Mobil, Northrop Grumman, Elsevier, Sequoia

Scientific, Li-Cor Biogeosciences, Cassidy Associates, Decagon Devices, RBR Ltd., Springer, the Max Hammond

Student Travel Endowment, and 197 AGU members. A campaign to endow the travel grant program

was initiated in 2005 and will continue until AGU has the resources to annually fund 300 travel grants.

The AGU Fall Meeting provided an opportunity to promote our science and introduce our members to

the public. Fifty teachers learned about latest discoveries from leading scientists at the annual Geophysical

Information for Teachers (GIFT) workshop and went home with related activities to engage students.

More than 100 came to the family-oriented Exploration Station to learn and talk to scientists and educators.

About 200 attended an AGU-sponsored public talk by Dr. Peter Smith about the Phoenix Mission to Mars

The event was held at the Exploratorium.

AGU completed another fiscally successful year

on 31 December 2008. Despite continued declines

in the American and global economy, AGU maintained

income and expense levels similar to those

experienced in fiscal year 2007, resulting in a net

operating income of $1,320,000.

AGU’s business model has been extremely successful

for many years. Revenues from profitable programs,

such as Publications and Meetings, have been used

to support other important (but sometimes less

profitable) programmatic endeavors such as outreach

and membership services. Such revenues are

also used as a source of funds for the development of

new programs and ongoing infrastructure improvements

at AGU headquarters. This business model

and a constant review of all programs has allowed

management to effectively evaluate organizational

needs and guide resources to those areas were they

can be efficiently deployed.

Consistent with historical financial performance,

the Publications and Meetings programs remained

the primary sources of revenue for AGU in 2008.

Publications accounted for 69% of the organization’s

revenue, and Meetings generated another

17%. Both programs experienced increases in

revenue over 2007, with Publications revenues

gaining approximately 5% and Meetings gaining

a noteworthy 15%. Membership, rental, contributions,

and grant income accounts for the remaining

14% of annual revenues. While membership dues

and rental income are significantly smaller portions

of the AGU revenue stream, they too generated

greater income in 2008 than the previous year.

Grant income was down moderately; however,

contribution income was significantly influenced

by the downturn in the economy. Donations from

corporate and individual donors alike experienced

declines in excess of 40% over 2007 levels. Management

had anticipated this decline and built it

into the 2008 budget.

Also consistent with historical performance were

AGU’s annual expenses. Publications, meetings,

and general administrative expenses comprise

a combined 84% of the organizations annual expenses

and were within budgeted expectations for

the fiscal year. Outreach, marketing, fundraising,

and grant programs account for the remaining

16% of annual expenses. Of some significance, and

due in part to the transition of some publications

to electronic formats, was a decline in publication

expenses of approximately 3%. Also noteworthy

was an increase in meeting expenses of nearly 23%,

which were somewhat offset by the increases in

meeting revenues previously noted above.

The organization’s 2008 investment performance

mirrored that of the economy and the overall stock

market. While losses are never well received, in a

market environment such as that experienced in

2008, some losses are realistically … unavoidable.

However, management is confident that AGU’s investment

portfolio is not only secure, but it is properly

positioned to take advantage of future changes

in the market.

With the coming year promising further challenges

to the economy, AGU is actively monitoring

income and expenses indicators and is ready to

modify fiscal strategies to meet the changing needs

of the membership.

DONORS

Partners

Writing to AGU president Tim Killeen in October 2007,

Sunanda Basu said, “Santi and I met in October 1957…. In

celebration of our 50-year partnership, we want to endow an

International Early Career Award within the Space Physics

and Aeronomy section.” Early in their careers, the Basus

experienced challenges that scientists in developing nations

still face today. That’s why they created this award. The Basus wanted the award to recognize a young

scientist in a developing nation for making outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth systems

science—their science. Equally important, they wanted the awardee to benefit from interacting with

peers from many countries at AGU’s Fall Meeting. For this, the Basus gave an endowment gift of

$50,000 to AGU the following January, making them the most generous donors in 2008.

Sunanda became a member at 22 when she coauthored a paper in Journal of Geophysical Research

(JGR) as a master’s student at Boston University during a 2-year stay in the United States. Santimay

joined AGU 6 years later. When they returned to India in the mid-1960s, he created a space physics

group at the Institute of Radio Physics, Calcutta University. It was not easy. Meanwhile, Sunanda

received her doctorate based on four papers published in JGR and became the first woman to get

her Ph.D. in radio physics from the University of Calcutta. Faced with gender-work issues in India,

Sunanda successfully applied for a National Research Council postdoctoral position at the Air Force

Geophysics Laboratory near Boston, with Santimay and their only son joining her. For nearly 40 years

the Basus have enjoyed very rewarding research careers in the United States while collaborating with

peers around the world and helping AGU to fulfill its mission.

THANK YOU

Sunanda and Santimay Basu

Yao Chen received the first Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award at the 2008 AGU

Fall Meeting. The award recognizes an individual scientist in a developing nation for making

outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth systems science that further the understanding

of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society.

AGU gratefully acknowledges the 8176 gifts, grants, and pledges, both large and small, from members and

friends during 2008.
