Professor Rich Harrison will be giving the Edward Bullard Lecture at AGU 2023.

The Edward Bullard Lecture is presented at AGU’s annual meeting by a scientist who has made significant contributions in the field of geomagnetism, paleomagnetism, or electromagnetism. It is named to honor the work and life of geophysicist Edward Crisp Bullard, who studied Natural Sciences at Clare College, Cambridge.

Honorees will be recognized at AGU23, which will convene more than 25,000 attendees from over 100 countries in San Francisco and online everywhere on 11-15 December 2023. This celebration is a chance for AGU’s community to recognize the outstanding work of scientists and be inspired by their accomplishments and stories. 

According to AGU, “Being selected as a Section Honoree is bestowed upon individuals for meritorious work or service toward the advancement and promotion of discovery and solution science. AGU, the world's largest Earth and space science association, annually recognizes a select number of individuals as part of its Honors and Recognition program.”
