Recognizing significant contributions to Space Science
The Eugene Parker Lecture is presented two out of every three years to a space scientist who has made significant contributions to the fields of solar and heliospheric science. It is named to honor the life and work of solar astrophysicist Eugene N. Parker, a pioneer in the study of solar wind. The lecture is presented during the AGU Fall Meeting.
The Parker Lecture is also part of the Bowie Lecture Series, established to commemorate the 50th presentation of the William Bowie medal, AGU’s highest honor.
