 Bert Bolin Global Environmental Change Award

The Bert Bolin Award is named after Bert Rickard Johannes Bolin (1925-2007), a Swedish biogeochemist/meteorologist who served as the first Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This award is given annually to one individual or a team of individuals for their ground breaking research and/or leadership in global environmental change through cross-disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary research in the past 10 years. The award is applicable to mid-career or senior scientists, as defined by AGU.

AWARD INCLUDES:
Award certificate
• Named Global Environmental Change    Bert Bolin Lecture Presentation
Announcement in EOS

Schneider Lecture

The Stephen Schneider Memorial Lecture honors the life and work of scientist and climatologist, Stephen Schneider. Schneider was an extremely influential scientist with extensive national and international recognition for his research, policy analyses, and outreach related to climate and climate change.

This Global Environmental Change focus group named lecture is presented annually at the AGU Fall Meeting, held in San Francisco, Calif. The Schneider Lecture is webcast and made available as an archived presentation on the AGU website.

The Schneider Lecturer is selected in recognition of outstanding scientific accomplishments in global environmental change and in communicating scientific results to the public.

Nominations for the Schneider Lecture are accepted and can be submitted to Global Environmental Change Award Chair Rong Fu

LECTURE INCLUDES:
• Lecture certificate
• Announcement in Eos
• Complimentary meeting registration to participate in the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year
• Invitation to present the Schneider Lecture at the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year
• Recognition at the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year

Bert Bolin Lecture

The Bert Bolin Lecture honors the life of Bert Rickard Johannes Bolin (1925-2007), a Swedish biogeochemist/meteorologist who served as the first Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Bolin is not only an outstanding researcher in global biogeochemical cycle and climate change, but also an effective scientific statesmen and international leader who brought together a diverse range of views among thousands of scientists, including the United Nations Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol. His efforts have directly contributed to a broad understanding of the social, political, and security consequences of climate change brought by human impacts.

LECTURE INCLUDES:
• Lecture certificate
• Announcement in Eos
• Invitation to present the Bert Bolin Lecture at the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year
• Recognition at the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year

Tyndall Lecture

The Tyndall History of Global Environmental Change Lecture honors the life and work of physicist, John Tyndall. Tyndall’s measurements in the late 1850s and early 1860s verified the importance of the greenhouse effect that had been proposed by Fourier in 1824.

This Global Environmental Change focus group named lecture is presented annually at the AGU Fall Meeting, held in San Francisco, Calif. The Tyndall Lecture is webcast and made available as an archived presentation on the AGU website.

The Tyndall Lecturer is selected in recognition of outstanding contributions to our understanding of global environmental change. Specifically, this lecture focuses on the development of the science underlying global environmental change and provides a historical perspective.

Nominations for the Tyndall Lecture are accepted and can be submitted to Global Environmental Change Award Chair Rong Fu

LECTURE INCLUDES:
• Lecture certificate
• Announcement in Eos
• Complimentary meeting registration to participate in the AGU Fall Meeting during the lecture presentation year
