Jean-Louis Le Mouel is among our century's most effective geomagneticians. It reflects much credit on the AGU that he is now a Fleming Medalist. He has made many significant contributions to the collection, analysis, and interpretation of magnetic data and has solved several long-outstanding theoretical problems.
