  • Dr. James Russell, III 2013 AGU Fellow

    CONGRATULATIONS! The Union Fellows Selection Committee is proud to present the 2013 AGU Fellow to Dr. James Russell, III! We would like to congratulate Dr. Russell for his leadership in developing and operating experiments, for answering questions about the Earth’s atmosphere and for the sustained impact of his work.

    Established in 1962, the Fellows program recognizes AGU members who have attained acknowledged eminence in the Earth and space sciences as valued by their peers and vetted by a committee of Fellows. The primary criterion for evaluation of scientific eminence is a major breakthrough or discovery, paradigm shift, or sustained impact.

    This year 214 nominations were submitted for review by 17 section and focus group Fellows committees. After careful consideration by the section and focus group Fellows committees, 103 nominees were submitted for final consideration and review by the Union Fellows Committee. AGU bylaws require that the size of a Fellows class be limited to no more than 0.1% of the total AGU membership. As a result, 62 individuals have been elected into the 2013 class of AGU Fellows, which includes the largest number of women elected in one year.

    AGU acknowledges the tenacity and steadfast work of the volunteers who agreed to serve on a Fellows committee.

    The Honors Ceremony and Banquet   will be held at the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA on Wednesday, December 11.
