Seismic Sensors in Orbit
The William Bowie Lecture is presented annually and recognizes significant contributions to the fundamentals of geophysics, as well as unselfish cooperation in research. It is presented by invitation only and is named to honor the life and work of William Bowie, a geodetic engineer who also served as AGU’s first president.
The Bowie Lecture is part of the Bowie Lecture Series, established in 1989 to commemorate the 50th presentation of the William Bowie medal, AGU's highest honor. Section lectures established in honor of a past Bowie medalist are part of the Bowie Lecture series.
This lecture is the premier scientific activity of the Geodesy section during the AGU Fall Meeting.
AGU is proud to recognize our section honorees. Recipients of the William Bowie Lecture will receive the following benefits with the honor:
Named section lectures are not required to follow a nomination cycle process (i.e. submit a nomination package). Sections have the flexibility to adopt the process that will best serve their communities in seeking their lecture recipients. For nomination requirements, please contact M. Meghan Miller.
Nominations are now closed. The 2021 Nominations for all AGU honors will open on Thursday 15 October 2020.
