Nominations are welcome for:
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.Contact:

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly
The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
