Call for Submissions

The Theme intends to bring together environmental geographers, earth and environmental scientists, scholars, educators, and policy makers from diverse sectors to present and consider how AAG and Physical Geography contribute to Environmental Science, Security, Health, Resilience, and Sustainability. This theme encourages sharing ideas, technologies, case studies, innovations, and networking for problem solving at spatial scales ranging from local to global relating to one or more areas of environmental science. This theme is intended to highlight Geography’s participation, contributions, and impacts in Environmental Science and Policy, in the national and international spotlight of Washington DC.

We encourage broad participation from all geographers, other environmental, GIScience, social, communications, and humanities researchers, policy makers, and stakeholders concerned with the intersection of geography and the environment at the AAG Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, April 3-7, 2019.

Papers on all aspects of Physical Geography as Environmental Science are welcome. New abstracts and Sessions may select this theme upon submission. Posters welcome! If you have already submitted an abstract or session and would like to be considered to join this theme, please feel free to contact us via and share your name, submitted session or abstract title, and AAG abstract PIN.
