Three geology majors who were selected for National Science Foundation Student Research programs last summer are headed to San Francisco this week to present their research projects at the meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

The three students, all seniors, are Jordan Carey, Alexis McAdams and Matt Osman.

The AGU Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting more than 24,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders.

McAdams also was selected as a NASA Social participant. NASA and the AGU brought 20 social media users together for a behind-the-scenes experience at the world's largest Earth and solar system science conference. (Follow McAdams on Twitter)

The three students' research projects are:

• Effects of Basin Subsidence on Experimental Delta Sedimentation Patterns and Surface Morphology; Jordan Carey; Antoinette Abeyta; Chris Paola; Brady Foreman

• Temporal and Spatial Relationships Between Megathrust Earthquakes and Intraslab Stress Fields in South America; Alexis R. McAdams; Linda M. Warren

• Employing Passive Acoustics as a Temporally Precise Monologue for Constraining Ebullitive Methane Fluxes in Warming Subarctic Lakes; Matt Osman; Ruth K. Varner; Michael W. Palace; Martin Wik; Patrick M. Crill; Ashley Lang
