Mozer has been awarded the John Adam Fleming Medal in recognition of his outstanding achievements, contributions, and service to the Earth and space science community.
The recipients of the AGU medals and awards represent many areas of Earth and space science and come from a variety of backgrounds including early career researchers, climate scientists, data scientists, and journalists. Their passion, vision, creativity, and leadership have helped to expand scientific understanding, pave the way to new research directions, and have made Earth and space science accessible, relevant, and inspiring to audiences across the scientific community and general public. The honorees will be recognized during the Honors Tribute at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting, which will take place on Wednesday, 12 December 2018, in Washington, DC.
