CEH scientists and students took their research out on the road this month, with a number of presentations and posters at two major international conferences in Liverpool and San Francisco.

Storify: CEH science at BES2016 and AGU16

The British Ecological Society Annual Meeting attracts more than 1000 scientists each year and features a packed programme of diverse science, workshops, special interest group meetings and fun social activities. This year CEH science on a range of subjects, from habitat mapping and insect invasions to pollinator populations and tropical forests, was presented through talks and poster sessions. The event took place at the ACC Liverpool from 11-14 December 2016. Read our Storify summary of CEH science.

More than 5000 miles away, the AGU Fall Meeting took place in San Francisco from 12-16 December. This mammoth conference is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world, with more than 24,000 participants. Again, some great CEH science was on show including urban hydrology, water quality, drought monitoring and more. Numerous other speakers also presented on projects that feature CEH scientists as prominent collaborators.

Here are links to abstracts from both conferences:

CEH work on drought monitoring is also represented in a talk on building better drought resilience, our Whim Bog field site and equipment is key to a talk on ammonia sampling and we are collaborating on work to better understand monsoon rainfall.

You can follow updates from both conferences on Twitter via #BES2016 and #AGU16. In the meantime, good luck to all our staff taking part in both events!
