Hi Everyone,

Nominations for the 2007 Charles S. Falkenberg Award through the AGU  
are being accepted.  The deadline is October 15.
The winner receives a lovely piece and a monetary award (in the  
$1000-1500 ballpark).

We need nominations!  The AGU will not consider giving any awards if  
there are less than 3 nominees.    I am asking each of you to beat  
the bushes for "young scientists (under age 45) who have made not  
only an original contribution to the field of Earth science but have  
also strived to achieve significant public awareness of the  
importance of understanding our planet."

Nominating someone is fairly simple, it involves writing a letter to  
the AGU and soliciting 3-6 other letters of support (see http:// 
www.agu.org/inside/awardnom.html for the complete instructions.)

Please, everyone, send this email to your colleagues, beat the  
bushes, and nominate the young scientists in your organization!  We  
want the Falkenberg Award to be an important, meaningful award for  
the Federation, for AGU, and in Charlie's memory.

many thanks,
