American Geophysical Union Announces 2018 Fellows

WASHINGTON, DC—The American Geophysical Union (AGU) today announced its 2018 Fellows, an honor given to individual AGU members who have made exceptional scientific contributions and gained prominence in their respective fields of Earth and space sciences. Since the AGU Fellows program was established in 1962, and according to the organization’s bylaws, no more than 0.01 percent of the total membership of AGU is recognized annually. This year’s class of Fellows are geographically diverse coming from 21 countries.

“AGU Fellows are recognized for their outstanding contributions to scholarship and discovery in the Earth and space sciences. Their work pushes the limits of human knowledge by helping to understand better the complex world and universe around us and to build the knowledge base for a more sustainable future,” said Eric Davidson, AGU President. “The rich diversity of disciplines and career backgrounds of this year’s Fellows is evidence of the great scholarship, depth and breadth of knowledge, and profound scientific curiosity of AGU’s global membership of more than 60,000. We are pleased to recognize and honor the newest class of Fellows for their significant and lasting contributions to the Earth and space sciences.”

The 2018 class of Fellows will be recognized during the Honors Tribute on Wednesday, 12 December, held during the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting in Washington, DC.
