Report of the fellows committee


  • Albrecht W. Hofmann


The AGU Fellows Committee is pleased to announce it has just elected 41 AGU members as new Fellows for their “eminence in geophysics.” The total number elected each year is established by AGU's bylaws and is limited to 0.1% of the total membership.

The process of electing Fellows begins with the nominations submitted by the general membership to AGU, that are then sent to the section Fellows committees. The section committees review these nominations, prepare their rankings, and forward an allotted number of nominations with their rankings to the Union Fellows Committee. Additional “cosponsored” nominations supported by two or more sections are encouraged, and they have had a very high success rate in the final elections by the Fellows Committees.
