Proposed InterRidge-sponsored session at AGU, 6-10 Dec 2012

The InterRidge Office is proposing to sponsor a session at AGU 2012. It seems appropriate to have a ridge focused session, now that national programmes have ended. At this stage, if you would be prepared to support this by presenting a paper, please contact the office ( by the end of February so that we can see the level of support within the InterRidge community.

InterRidge: Third Decadal Plan 2014-2023 discussion meeting

Please make every effort to attend the InterRidge Third Decade Planning meeting in San Francisco this December (just prior to the Fall AGU). InterRidge is YOUR programme. And this meeting is YOUR chance to influence its priorities over the next decade.

The successes of InterRidge are the successes of the whole ridge community. There is currently a rapidly growing economic and political interest in ridges and their resources. This pushes ridge science up the political and economic agenda and, as a result, the role of InterRidge is becoming ever more important. What do you think the big issues for ridge science are?
