Matt Kohn has been named a fellow of the American Geophysical Union, the overarching professional society for all things related to Earth and space science. Kohn is one of 61 fellows named this year, less than 0.1 percent of the more than 60,000 members worldwide.

As the union states, “The AGU elect as fellows members whose visionary leadership and scientific excellence have fundamentally advanced research in their respective fields. AGU fellows are recognized for their scientific eminence in the Earth and space sciences. Their breadth of interests and the scope of their contributions are remarkable and often groundbreaking. They have expanded our understanding of the Earth and space sciences, from volcanic processes, solar cycles, and deep-sea microbiology to the variability of our climate and so much more.”
