Kellogg selected as AGU Fellow


Professor Paul Kellogg of the School of Physics and Astronomy has been made a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).

AGU members who are selected as Fellows have attained an acknowledged eminence in a branch of the geophysical sciences. The number of Fellows selected annually is limited to no more than 0.1% of AGU's 41,000 person membership. Kellogg was cited "in recognition of his theoretical contributions that defined the emerging field of space plasma physics. In particular, for his predictions of the collisionless bow shock, the structure of the natural and artificial radiation belts, and the physics of plasma waves in the earth=B9s foreshock and from the sun, this award is given."
