Drs. Geraint Jones, Adam Masters, and Mr Yudish Ramanjooloo are attending the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco, USA.

Dr. Jones is presenting an invited talk reviewing surface charging and dust at moons of the outer planets, and is presenting work on heavy negatively charged ions in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. Dr. Masters has co-organised a successful session on Saturn's magnetosphere and has presented work on reconnection at Saturn's magnetopause. Mr Ramanjooloo is presenting a new technique for understanding the local conditions in the solar wind by analysing images of comets. Work has also been presented on behalf of Dr. Arridge on a large analysis of electron properties in Saturn's magnetosphere from over seven years of Cassini data. The AGU fall meeting is the largest meeting in the field of geophysics and planetary science and is held every year in San Francisco.
