Entries for 2012 AGU journalism awards accepted until March 16

17.02.2012
Journalists are invited to submit nominations for the American Geophysical Union's 2012 journalism awards, honoring outstanding reporting on Earth and space sciences.
Each of the two 2012 awards consist of a plaque and a $5,000 stipend, to be presented on 8 December 2012 at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Entries must be received at AGU by 16 March 2012 -- a much later deadline than in prior years. (So, if you thought you missed the deadline, you

didn't!)

Nominations are welcome for:

* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-News,
which recognizes excellence in science news reporting, 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 Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism-Features,
which recognizes excellence in science feature reporting, generally produced
under a deadline of longer than one week. It is named for Walter Sullivan of

The New York Times, who was the first recipient of the award.

Nominations may be submitted for work first published in 2011 only, and may be from any country, in any language (English translation required), and in any news medium, except books. Entries will be judged by how well they meet one or more of the following three criteria: brings new information or concepts about AGU sciences to the public's attention, identifies and corrects misconceptions about AGU sciences, and makes AGU sciences accessible and interesting to general audiences, without sacrificing accuracy.

The deadline for award entries to be received (not postmarked) at AGU headquarters in Washington, D.C., USA, is Friday, 16 March 2012.

The only authoritative statements of the rules governing these awards (and a link to the nomination form) are posted at http://bit.ly/wvDKfQ for the Perlman Award and at http://bit.ly/zh3ldn for the Sullivan Award. On each award's website, please consult the following sections -- Award Biography, Nomination Process & Requirements, and Submission Process -- for nomination rules, access to the nomination form, the mailing address for entries, and submission details such as the number of copies to provide.

Please note that the Evaluation Process sections of the award sites are being revised; if you have questions about the evaluation process, please contact Peter Weiss, AGU Public Information Manager, at pweiss@agu.org, or +1 202-777-7507.

AGU is a worldwide scientific community with more than 60,000 members. Its mission is to promote discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity.

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...

Im Focus: Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.

Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
