Jennifer Flannery (Chemist, St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center [SPCMSC]) chaired a USGS-sponsored session titled “Catch Climate-Change Fever” along with invited speakers Julie Richey (Research Geologist, SPCMSC), Christopher G. Smith (Research Geologist, SPCMSC) and Caitlin Reynolds (Geologist, SPCMSC). Jennifer Miselis (Research Geologist, SPCMSC) was invited to speak about her research in a USGS-sponsored session titled “Earth, Wind, and Fire: USGS Science to Minimize Disaster Impacts” sponsored by Thomas Doyle (Deputy Director, Wetland Aquatic Research Center).

All five representatives from the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center served as judges for numerous undergraduate student poster presentations in the fields of Geology and Marine Science. Additionally, each SPCMSC scientist participated in a “Conversation with Scientists” mentoring/guidance event to speak with undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists looking at careers with the USGS. All SPCMSC scientists spent time at the USGS exhibit hall booth talking to people with various scientific backgrounds and academic levels about the cutting-edge research performed by various groups within the USGS.
