Dr. Roger Francois named Fellow of the American Geophysical Union

August 23, 2017

Congratulations to Professor Roger Francois on his election as Fellow of the American Geophysical Union! Dr. Francois holds a Canada Reseach Chair in Marine Biogeochemistry and Climate Change Studies. Roger's election as FAGU honours his research on application of geochemistry to problems of paleoceanography, with particular emphasis on late Quaternary paleoceanography, radiochemical approaches, carbon and nitrogen isotope geochemistry, trace element proxies and abyssal water circulation. The award  is a great distinction as only 0.1% of AGU membership receives this recognition in any given year. The 2017 class of Fellows will be inducted during the Honors Tribute on Wednesday, 13 December, held during the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans. Read more on the 2017 FAGU at https://news.agu.org/press-release/american-geophysical-union-announces-2017-fellows/
