AGU Climate Communication Prize 2011

AGU is committed to the recognition and reward of AGU scientists for excellence in communicating science. It is pleased to announce the newly launched AGU Climate Communication Prize! This new Union prize, generously funded by Nature's Own, will honor an AGU member-scientist for the communication of climate science. The prize highlights the importance of promoting scientific literacy, clarity of message, and efforts to foster respect and understanding of science-based values as they relate to the implications of climate change.

The prize will be awarded annually and will be presented at AGU's Fall Meeting. It will carry a cash award of $25,000.

Nominate a colleague for this achievement now! The award will raise the visibility of this critical issue facing society and the winner will serve as an inspiring role model for other AGU scientists to emulate.

Please submit your nominations here.

Nominations must be complete and received at AGU headquarters by September 30, 2011
