American Geophysical Union

American Geophysical Union

The AGU LaTeX template features a single-column draft layout by default but has the option to change this to a two-column layout which mimics the layout of published articles and allows authors to get an accurate estimation of the size of their article. The draft layout divides the article into separate pages by different elements: the author information, abstract, article content and figures/tables. The template contains ample commenting which advises you how the AGU would like you to use the template, several rules to note are that no custom macros are allowed, no subfigures are accepted, and the bibliography must consist of ‘\bibitem’s rather than the inclusion of a bib file.
