The American Geophysical Union (AGU) recently announced its 2014 class of Fellows. This honor is given to individual AGU members who have made exceptional scientific contributions and attained acknowledged eminence in the fields of Earth and space sciences.

Since the establishment of the AGU Fellows program in 1962, and in accordance with AGU bylaws, no more than 0.1 percent of the total membership of AGU is recognized annually.

Among the 62 individuals elected as 2014 Fellows are two AAS members:

  • Alexander G. Kosovichev, Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory, Stanford University, California
  • Thomas N. Woods, Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, University of Colorado, Boulder

They and the other new Fellows will be recognized during a ceremony on Wednesday, 17 December, held during the 2014 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

The American Geophysical Union is dedicated to advancing the Earth and space sciences for the benefit of humanity through its scholarly publications, conferences, and outreach programs. AGU is a not-for-profit, professional, scientific organization representing more than 62,000 members in 142 countries.
