Recognizing Early Contributions to Hydrology

The Hydrologic Sciences Early Career Award is presented annually and recognizes outstanding contributions to hydrology through research, education, or societal impacts. Successful nominees are early-career scientists who demonstrate outstanding contributions to hydrologic sciences, education, or societal impacts and show exceptional promise of continued contributions to hydrology throughout their career.

Honor Benefits
Recipients receive the following:

  • An award certificate
  • Recognition at AGU's annual meeting the year the honor is awarded
  • Ticket to the Hydrology section luncheon that occurs at AGU's annual meeting the year the honor is awarded

About the Hydrology Section

The Hydrology Section is one of twenty-five sections in the American Geophysical Union. Its members are concerned with the cycling of continental water (solid, liquid and vapor) at all scales, and with physical, chemical and biological processes driven by that cycling. Of AGU's almost 60,000 members, about 7000 list their primary affiliation with the hydrology section.


The nominee must be an early-career scientist within 10 years of receiving their Ph.D, or highest equivalent terminal degree at the time of nomination deadline.
