Each year since 1962, AGU has elected as Fellows members whose visionary leadership and scientific excellence have fundamentally advanced research in their respective fields. This year, 62 members will make up the 2018 class of Fellows.
AGU Fellows are recognized for their scientific eminence in the Earth and space sciences. Their breadth of interests and the scope of their contributions are remarkable and often groundbreaking. Only 0.1% of AGU membership receives this recognition in any given year.
On behalf of the AGU Honors and Recognition Committee, the Union Fellows Committee, the section Fellows committees, and AGU leaders and staff, we are immensely proud to present the 2018 class of AGU Fellows.
We appreciate the efforts of everyone who provided support and commitment to AGU’s Honors Program. Our dedicated volunteers gave valuable time and energy as members of selection committees to elect this year’s Fellows. We also thank all the nominators and supporters who made this possible through their dedicated efforts to nominate and recognize their colleagues.
Honor and Celebrate Eminence at Fall Meeting
At this year’s Honors Tribute, to be held Wednesday, 12 December, at Fall Meeting 2018 in Washington, D. C., we will celebrate and honor the exceptional achievements, visionary leadership, talents, and dedication of 62 new AGU Fellows.
