OFf to AGU tomorrow morning. I’m doing two presentations – an oral presentation on hurricanes on Wednesday in a Spatial Statistics session (with Roger Pielke) and a poster on Friday on Almagre tree rings (with Pete Holzmann). See climateaudit.org/pdf/agu07.* for the two PPTs.
AGU tends to be exhausting. Plus I’ve got a reasonably full social calendar as well. Plus for the third year I’m taking my squash racquet – one of my friends for Toronto is working in Toronto, so maybe this year I’ll actually play. Usually I’m too tired at the end of each day.
The bristlecone program has cost about $4000; I haven’t done an exact accounting, but contributions in response to the announcement were about $3500-3700. My trip to AGU is going to cost about $2000 between plane fare, hotels, registration, presentation fees, etc.
I’ll try to write some daily reports. If I don’t, it’s because I’m having a good time.
Update: thanks to readers for their response to this. About 60 readers contributed $2700.
