Commissioner Larry Mayer elected fellow of the American Geophysical Union

Dr. Larry Mayer was among the 62 members of the 60,000-member American Geophysical Union (AGU) elected to the 2020 class of Fellows, scientists who have made considerable contributions to geological and geophysical research through scientific breakthroughs, discovery, or innovation. As fewer than 0.1% of the membership is elected each year, Mayer joins an elite group of global leaders and experts. This honor comes on the heels of Mayer also being elected, in 2018, to the National Academy of Engineering. USARC is fortunate to have such an esteemed and highly respected scientist serving as a member of the USARC Commissioner. Details and the list of other AGU fellows elected in 2020, and on the virtual award ceremony, can be found in this article in Eos.
