the IUGG has opened nominations for its Gold Medal for 2019. This is
awarded only every four years, to coincide with IUGG general assemblies,
and the previous winner (2015) was Sir Brian Hoskings, the UK meteorologist.
Details on how to nominate are at http://www.iugg.org/honors/Gold_Medal.pdf
A nomination and 2-4 supporting letters are required, at least two of which
have to be from outside the nominee's country of residence. The deadline
is 20th October 2018.
The IUGG also has Fellowships and an Early Career Scientist award,
