AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards 2010

11.11.2009
Science journalists are invited to submit nominations for the American Geophysical Union's 2010 journalism awards, honoring outstanding reporting on Earth and space sciences.

Starting with these 2010 awards, the deadline for submissions has been moved to early January to attract greater numbers of entries, including stories from the AGU 2009 Fall Meeting, Dec. 14-18, in San Francisco (http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/). The 2010 awards deadline is 8 January 2010.

Nominations are welcome for:

* The Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-Features, which recognizes excellence in reporting, generally produced with deadlines of longer than one week, that explains the background of scientific discoveries or principles. It is named for Walter Sullivan of The New York Times, first recipient of the award.

* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-News, which recognizes excellence in reporting news of scientific advances, generally produced under deadline pressure of one week or less. It is named for David Perlman, Science Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and 1997 winner of the AGU Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism.

The awards consist of a plaque and a $2,000 stipend, to be presented at an AGU meeting in 2010. Nominations may be submitted for work first published between 1 November 2008 and 31 December 2009 and may be from any country, in any language (English translation required), and in any news medium, except books.

The deadline is Friday, 8 January 2010. This deadline has been changed from previous years.
Entries must be received (not postmarked) by 8 January 2010 to be considered for the awards.

The only authoritative statement of the rules governing these awards (and a link to the nomination form) are posted at http://www.agu.org/sci_soc/sci_awards.html#Eligibility_and_submission_requirements (Do not rely on the brief summary in this announcement.)

AGU is a worldwide scientific community that advances, through unselfish cooperation in research, the understanding of the Earth and space for the benefit of humanity.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
