Tue, 12/12/2017
The 2017 AGU Fall Meeting, held Dec. 11–15 in New Orleans, LA, will feature over 30 presentations from UDI researchers, collaborators, and partners that showcase cross-cutting research and development in geophysical sciences for urban applications.

The Urban Dynamics Institute (UDI) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is making a strong showing at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) with over 30 presentations total from UDI researchers, collaborators, and industry partners.

The 2017 AGU Fall Meeting, happening this week on December 11–15 in New Orleans, LA, is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world with wide attendance from the global geophysical sciences community.

In addition to an extensive scientific program with over 20,000 oral and poster presentations, the week-long meeting features keynote speakers, special events, and exhibits that explore priority research, technologies, and emerging trends in Earth and space sciences.

Research highlights for the UDI include interdisciplinary topics in energy and national security with data-driven approaches to energy-sector monitoring and analysis; infrastructure resilience; sustainable urban development; high-resolution population, building, and neighborhood mapping; bioenergy; emergency management; and other urban challenges. Several focused sessions spotlight the institute’s Energy-Water Nexus theme and explore pathways to enhance data integration, analysis, and visualization technologies for the energy-water community.
