William B. Hanson lecturers are selected based on nominations by members of the Atmospheric Sciences and Space Physics and Aeronomy sections, the broader AGU community, and the general public.
A nomination package must include a letter of recommendation from the nominator or collaborative nominators and from any supporters stating why the candidate is well-suited to give the Hanson Lecture. The letter should briefly explain the importance of the science conducted by the nominee or by those coworkers that the nominee has directly influenced in the field of atmospheric sciences and/or space physics and aeronomy. Any evidence of how the nominee has contributed to the advancement of discovery for the benefit of humanity should also be included.
Multiple nominators for a candidate are allowed; however, nominators should consider collaborating to submit a more robust package for the nominee.
Nominations for the Hanson Lecture are being accepted for the 2020 award presentation year.
The first William B. Hanson Lecture honoree will be selected June 2020.
