The Franklin Institute is seeking nominations for the 2010 Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science, for the theme of Earth systems. The award, which comes with a gold medal and a US$250,000 cash prize, recognizes individuals “who have made significant scientific contributions to our understanding of the interrelationships among Earth systems leading to increased predictability of natural or human-induced changes on the planet.”
