UCI Professor Liu Chen was publicly acknowledged this month in San Francisco as a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union for his major contributions to space plasma physics.
To be elected a Fellow of AGU is a special tribute for those who have made exceptional scientific contributions.
Nominated Fellows must have attained acknowledged eminence in the Earth and space sciences. Primary criteria for evaluation in scientific eminence are major breakthrough/discovery and paradigm shift. This designation is conferred upon not more than 0.1% of all AGU members in any given year. New Fellows are chosen by a Committee of Fellows.
