Our Arctic hydrology sessions at AAG 2013

The Association of American Geographers's Annual meeting in Los Angeles has started (April 9 - 13). Åsa is organizing a session about Arctic Hydrology in a Changing Climate together with Vena Chu (UCLA) and Christine Chen (Byrd Polar Research Center). It takes place on Saturday April 13 from 8am-11:40am in the Hollywood room at the LA hotel (Level 2). Join us, if you are at AAG. We have a terrific program:
