2016 Class of AGU Fellows Announced

The American Geophysical Union has chosen 60 new Fellows and will honor them at the upcoming 2016 Fall Meeting in San Francisco, Calif.

By and

Since the American Geophysical Union (AGU) established its Fellows Program in 1962, the organization has elected outstanding members as Union Fellows. This special honor recognizes scientific eminence in the Earth and space sciences. It acknowledges Fellows for their remarkable contributions to their research fields, exceptional knowledge, and visionary leadership. Only 0.1% of AGU membership receives this recognition in any given year.

On behalf of AGU’s Honors and Recognition Committee, our Union Fellows Committee, our section and focus group Fellows committees, and AGU leaders and staff, we are very pleased to present the 2016 AGU Class of Fellows.

We thank all who provided support and commitment to AGU’s honors program to help select these Fellows, including all members of section and focus group Fellows selection committees and of the Union Fellows Committee. These generous and devoted volunteers gave valuable time and energy to evaluating and selecting this year’s Fellows.  We also thank all the nominators and supporters who made all this possible through their dedicated efforts to nominate and recognize their colleagues.

Celebrate These Eminent Colleagues at Fall Meeting

We look forward to applauding the exceptional achievements, talents, and inspirations of these new Fellows at the annual Honors Tribute to be held on 14 December at the 2016 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

Please join us in congratulating our 2016 AGU Class of Fellows!
