2015 Class of AGU Fellows Announced

The 2015 American Geophysical Union Class of Fellows has been selected and will be recognized at the annual Fall Meeting in San Francisco, Calif.

By and Christina Ravelo

On behalf of the Honors and Recognition Committee and the Union Fellows Committee, we are very pleased to present the 2015 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Class of Fellows. Being elected a Union Fellow is a tribute to those AGU members who have made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences as valued by their peers and vetted by section and focus group committees. This honor is bestowed on only 0.1% of the membership in any given year.

We thank all who have given their support and commitment to AGU’s honors program. These include all the section and focus group Fellows selection committees and the Union Fellows Committee, who gave their valuable time and energy in evaluating and selecting this year’s Fellows. We also thank all the nominators and supporters who, through their dedicated efforts to nominate and recognize their colleagues, made all this possible.

We look forward to celebrating their breakthrough achievements and exceptional work at the annual Honors Ceremony and Banquet to be held on 16 December at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

Please join us in congratulating our 2015 AGU Class of Fellows!
