Peer nomination required
Recognizing Outstanding Dissertation Research in Nonlinear Geophysics
The Donald L. Turcotte Award is presented annually to an early-career or postdoctoral scientist in recognition of outstanding dissertation research that contributes directly to nonlinear geophysics. Notable contributions can include the awardee’s impact or potential impact of the research on the field of nonlinear geophysics.
The award is presented at the Nonlinear Geophysics section ticketed event during AGU's annual meeting.

About the Nonlinear Geophysics Section
The Nonlinear Geophysics Section focuses on quantifying nonlinear behavior through analysis of geophysical data and modeling using the mathematical tools and approaches of fractals, chaos, scaling, critical phenomenon, nucleation, cellular automata, and self-organizing and complex systems.
