Awards & Lectures

Awards & Lectures Overview

AGU sections recognize outstanding work within their scientific field by hosting nearly 25 named lecture presentations as well as awarding over 30 awards and prizes annually. Awardees – in various stages of their careers – and named lecturers – that represent some of the most innovative minds in their fields – are selected for contributing meritorious work or service toward the advancement and promotion of discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity.
