Early Deadline: 2 May for Nye Lecture & Young Investigator Nominations

Shad O'Neel


PLEASE READ: THIS IS POSTED AND DUE VERY EARLY THIS YEAR

 

2011 American Geophysical Union, Nye Lecture & Young Investigator Awards Call for Nominations

 

Since the formation of AGU's Cryosphere Focus Group in 2002, Cryosphere has had an increasing presence at the Fall AGU meeting in San Francisco.  One of the highlights of the Cryosphere Focus Group's program has been the Nye Lecture, traditionally held as close as possible to the Cryosphere Reception. These lectures have featured a variety of prestigious researchers as noted below:

2002 Bob Bindschadler: Consider An Ice Stream

2003 Kurt Cuffey: Stable Isotopes In Ice: Tracers Of The Global Environment

2004 Richard Alley: We Are All Glaciologists Now: Ice In The Climate System

2005 Matthew Sturm: Snow Crystals, Shrubs, and the Changing Climate of the Arctic

2006 Garry Clarke: Water Under Ice: Curiosities, Complexities, and Catastrophes

2007 Mark Serreze: Arctic Climate Change:  Where Reality Exceeds Expectations

2008 Mary Albert: Polar Science in a Time of Rapid Climate Change

2009 Larry Hinzman: Arctic Hydrology and the Role of Feedbacks in the Climate System

2010 Jeff Dozier: Mountain HydrologyThe Fourth Paradigm, and the Color of Snow

 

We are asking the cryospheric community to nominate a speaker for the Nye Lecture.  Please send their name, email address and a short paragraph on why you think they should be selected.  The only requirement is that the speaker must be an AGU member.

 

 

Additionally, we seek nominations for the 2011 Cryosphere Young Investigator Award, given each year to a young scientist for significant contributions to cryospheric science and technology. The award will consist of a $700 stipend to support travel of the awardee to the 2011 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, where they will be formally presented with a certificate. The National Snow and Ice Data Center, University of Colorado-Boulder generously sponsor the travel stipend.

Nominee should be within five years of receiving their PhD (as of December 2006). The nomination package for the 2011 AGU Cryosphere Young Investigator Award should include the following:

1. Letter of nomination from the primary nominator

2. The nominee's curriculum vitae

3. Two additional supporting letters

The nominating and supporting letters should clearly describe the contributions of the nominee and state the significance of those contributions to cryospheric science.

 

Please submit your nominations to Shad O’Neel ([hidden email]) by

Monday, 2 MAY 2011. Further details are available on the Cryosphere Focus Group website at:<http://www.agu.org/focus_group/cryosphere/index.html>.

 

Thank you and best regards,

Shad O’Neel, and the AGU Cryosphere Focus Group Executive Committee
