The American Geophysical Union (AGU) Cryosphere Focus Group Executive Committee announces a call for nominations for the 2017 Nye Lecturer and the Cryosphere Early Career Award.

The Nye Lecturer is selected based on highlighting and recognizing an outstanding cryospheric scientist and her/his recent accomplishments as well as the individual’s ability to present exciting science to the non-cryosphere community of AGU scientists. To qualify for the Nye Lecturer, nominees must be an active AGU member.

Formerly known as the Cryosphere Young Investigator Award, the Cryosphere Early Career Award is given annually to one honoree in recognition of significant early career contributions to cryospheric science and technology.

To qualify for the Cryosphere Early Career Award, nominees must be within ten years of receiving their degree, have an active AGU membership, and have their primary affiliation with the Cryosphere focus group.
