Seismic Sensors in Orbit
The Excellence in Earth and Space Science Education Award is given annually to a mid-career or senior scientist team, individual, or group demonstrating a sustained commitment to excellence in geophysical education. Successful candidates have made long-lasting, positive impacts in the Earth and space sciences at any education level from kindergarten through postgraduate studies.
After being established in 1995, the original Excellence in Geophysical Education Award was renamed in March 2017. Robert D. Ballard, who discovered the wreckage of the Titanic and inspired countless students, was the first recipient of this award in 1997.
AGU is proud to recognize our honorees. Recipients of the Excellence in Earth and Space Science Education Award will receive the following benefits:
An engraved crystal award
Recognition in Eos
Recognition at the AGU Fall Meeting during the award presentation year
