As an alternative to the usual luncheon and business meeting, AGU sections had wine and cheese parties at the 1987 Fall Meeting. The Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism (GP) Section preceded this informal gathering with its annual fall business meeting on Thursday, December 12. It was attended by some 60 people.
The first order of business was a comment by Richard Blakely (U.S. Geological Survey, Menlo Park, Calif.) thanking all those who assisted with and wrote articles for the GP section o f the U.S. National Report to the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). Then Subir Banerjee (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis) announced that the final report of the Asilomar Workshop on Rock Magnetism was available. Copies were passed out at the meeting; additional copies may be obtained from Banerjee or from AGU Headquarters.
