John B. Adams of the University of Washington has been named the recipient of the AGU's 1998 Fred Whipple Award, for outstanding contributions to the field of planetary science.

John Adams is one of the primary founders of the field of remote sensing spectroscopy of planetary surfaces, and the measurements and techniques that he pioneered have revolutionized our understanding of the solar system and have strongly influenced many, if not all, subsequent spacecraft and in situ explorations of our planetary neighbors.
