Lorraine Remer, research professor of physics and at the Joint Center for Earth Systems Technology, will become an American Geophysical Union (AGU) fellow at their Fall Meeting in San Francisco. AGU is an international scientific society of geophysicists. This is a tremendously prestigious honor, as only .1% of members are elected as AGU fellows.
Fellowships are given to AGU members who have made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences. Remer is the only 2015 fellow from Maryland and will be honored at the AGU Fall Meeting in December.
“Election to AGU Fellow is a tremendous and unexpected honor,” Remer said. “I am hoping that my election to AGU Fellow will help the broad scientific community become better aware of the excellent Earth science research taking place at UMBC.”
