Our Em2 and Emflume1 models at AGU 2014

Last month several of us went to the American Geophysical Union fall meeting. The meeting had record attendance! Over 24,000 science professionals and students converged in San Francisco from many parts of the world.

People poured into our booth to see our Emriver Em2 geomodel and two of our Emflume1 models. We met new people and saw familiar faces as well.

Our Emflume1 models simultaneously educate and mesmerize.

We debuted our Emflume1 lab manual, which was written by Awoke Teshager, one of Little River’s research scientists. It currently has seven experiments with more to come.

Awoke is pictured on the right in the photo below. Further below are two of his drawings from our Emflume1 lab manual.

Jim demonstrates how to adjust the standpipe in the Em2.

Talking with the diverse group of scientists who take part in AGU is a great way to spend a week. A conference where thousands of people are discussing ecosystem ecology and climate change is a welcomed event.

We appreciate everyone who stopped by and our colleagues at the office in Carbondale who kept Little River running. We're looking forward to seeing many of you again in San Francisco at the end of 2015 for the summation of another fabulous year.
