ATREE researchers Jagdish Krishnaswamy and Veena Srinivasan attended the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in San Francisco from December 14-18, 2015. With 24,000 attendees, the AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and Space scientific meeting in the world.

Jagdish Krishnaswamy, Senior Fellow and Convener of the Centre for Conservation Science, presented work on "La Nina and the Indian Ocean Dipole Influence on Distribution of Daily Rain Intensities in India" and "Estimating Evapotranspiration Demands of Different Land Cover Using Diurnal Signals in Dry Season Stream Discharge". He also participated in a pre-conference workshop on Critical Zone Observatories (CZO) where he discussed his work on the Western Ghats.

Veena Srinivasan, Fellow in the Land, Water and Livelihoods Programme presented a poster on "Decoding the Structure of Hard Rock Aquifers in Peninsular India using Participatory Groundwater Mapping". The work presented insights obtained from borewell camera scans in understanding the structure of hard rock aquifers. Veena Srinivasan also co-authored two posters with collaborators based on work done in the Arkavathy catchment in India: Joshua Peschel, University of Illinois, Urbana Champagne presented work on "Robot-Assisted Measurements in Data Sparse Regions" and Gopal Penny PhD student from UC Berkeley presented collaborative work on "Stream flow generation in a drying catchment outside Bangalore, India".
