Hi there!

The FieldKit team will be at the American Geophysical Union 2023 Fall Meeting from December 11-15, 2023 in San Francisco, CA, USA. Come by and see us at booth #1420 to check out our products and talk to the team—we’ll have our hardware, software, data interaction, and instrumentation experts on hand to answer any of your questions!

You’ll also have the opportunity to see and handle FieldKit stations, including our water chemistry modules, weather module, and distance module, plus the prototype FieldKit Underwater. For more information and specifications on each of these products, visit the following pages:

When we’re not at the booth, you can catch us presenting on a variety of topics and exploring the event. Please take a moment to say hello and introduce yourself!

Shah Selbe

Shah Selbe

Shah is the Founder and Managing Director of FieldKit. He leads our team and defines our development strategy. He will be presenting a poster during the MacGyver session about FieldKit Underwater, our latest development effort: a low-cost and open source alternative to existing sonde technology for underwater monitoring.
