On behalf of our 130,000 enthusiasts to experts worldwide in Earth and space sciences, AGU commends the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II (WGII) on its Sixth Assessment Report, AR6 Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability.
Nominations for medals, awards, prizes, fellows and section awards open today, 18 January, and are being accepted through 1 April. The AGU Board approved several changes to the Fellows program to align the nomination process more closely with AGU’s values. The AGU Honors and Recognition Committee also made updates to the honors program to better showcase the depth and breadth of our community’s achievements around the world.
The AGU Council members met ahead of Fall Meeting 2021. The group discussed the types and diversity of science that AGU represents, the importance of an inclusive culture and general updates.
In spite of the global pandemic, AGU donors and members continued to support the professional development of aspiring Earth and space scientists. Your dedication has made the advancement of programs and projects possible.
