Recognizing Advances in the Field of Earth and Planetary Surface Processes
The Luna B. Leopold Early Career Award is presented annually and recognizes an outstanding contribution that advances the field of Earth and planetary surface processes from an honoree within ten years of receiving their Ph.D. Notable contributions can be derived from an individual published paper or from multiple works.
Named in honor of Luna B. Leopold, who engaged with and nurtured early-career scientists throughout his distinguished career in hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, this award is presented during the AGU Fall Meeting.
- Award certificate
- Recognition at AGU's annual meeting the year the honor is awarded
- Complimentary ticket to the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Section event that occurs during the AGU Fall Meeting in the award presentation year.
About the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Section
The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Section focuses on the full range of processes — including anthropogenic — that generate, erode, and measure landscapes, that generate stratigraphy, and that couple the internal dynamics of the surface to climatic and tectonic forcings.
