  • Anonymous


AGU takes great pride in announcing the 1989 recipients of the highest honors presented by the Union, the AGU Medals. These outstanding scientists are chosen by a select committee of their peers for their significant contributions in one or more aspects of geophysics.

The William Bowie Medal, for outstanding contributions to fundamental geophysics and for unselfish cooperation in research, is awarded to Walter H. Munk (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, Calif.).
