Our colleague, John Meriwether, has been elected a fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). John retired at the end of the 2017/2018 academic year and is now an emeritus faculty member. Only 0.1% of the members are inducted into the AGU each year, so this is quite an honor. The AGU boasts over 62,000 members from 144 countries and publishes the leading journals in geoscience and space physics. Please join me in congratulating John for this well deserved recognition.
