Hi Everyone,

  many thanks to Dave Jones for his eloquent words on our loss on 911.   
I want to use this opportunity to tell everyone that nominations for 
the 2004 Charles S. Falkenberg Award through the AGU are now being 
accepted.  The deadline is October 15, which is not very far away.

We need nominations!  The AGU will not consider giving any awards if 
there are less than 3 nominees.  In 2003, we had the minimum number.  I 
am asking all of you to beat the bushes for "young scientists (under 
age 45) who have made not only an original contribution to the field of 
Earth science but have also strived to achieve significant public 
awareness of the importance of understanding our planet."

Nominating someone is fairly simple, it involves writing a letter to 
the AGU and soliciting 3-6 other letters of support (see 
http://www.agu.org/inside/awardnom.html for the complete instructions.)

Please, everyone, send this email to your colleagues, beat the bushes, 
and nominate the young scientists in your organization!  We want the 
Falkenberg Award to be an important, meaningful award for the 
Federation, for AGU, and in Charlie's memory.

many thanks,
