NASA researchers will present new findings on a wide range of Earth and space science topics next week at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

The meeting will take place Dec. 9-13 at the Moscone Convention Center, 747 Howard St., in San Francisco. Registration for the event is open.

The briefings will be streamed FREE at with promo code AGU13. They will not be carried on NASA Television.

NASA’s media briefings during the meeting will feature topics such as the latest discoveries from Mars and Saturn’s moon Titan, prospects for the recovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, Comet ISON, and close-up views of the sun from a NASA spacecraft launched this year. In addition, NASA scientists and their colleagues who use NASA research capabilities will present noteworthy findings during scientific sessions that are open to registered journalists.

On Monday, Dec. 9. reporters at the meeting were invited to an interview opportunity with NASA’s two top scientists: Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan and the agency’s associate administrator for science, John Grunsfeld. Be sure to visit the NASA Booth in the AGU Exhibit Hall, Moscone Center North.

At 9 a.m. PST Dec. 9, AGU hosted a briefing on new findings from NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover. A NASA media teleconference followed this briefing at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST) to discuss the new results from the Radiation Assessment Detector on Curiosity.
