The 2021 nomination period is open for AGU honors, including the Asahiko Taira International Scientific Ocean Drilling Research Prize. The Taira Prize is given annually in recognition of outstanding, transdisciplinary research accomplishment in ocean drilling to an honoree within 15 years of receiving their Ph.D. The Taira Prize is generously funded through the International Ocean DISCOVERY Program and is given in partnership between AGU and the Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU). It is presented at the AGU Fall Meeting.  An extended nomination period aims to increase selection and diversity among the nominees and to allow more time for nominators to develop multiple nomination packages. Deadline: April 15, 2021.
