Howard Zebker has been chosen as one of 60 new fellows of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). He will be honored at the AGU's upcoming fall meeting in San Francisco.

Since 1962, the AGU has elected outstanding members as Union Fellows. This special honor recognizes scientific eminence in the Earth and space sciences. It acknowledges fellows for their remarkable contributions to their research fields, exceptional knowledge and visionary leadership. Only 0.1 percent of AGU membership receives this recognition in any given year.

Zebker, who earned a PhD from Stanford, is professor of electrical engineering and of geophysics and is an affiliate of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. His research focuses on developing space-borne radar systems and applying remote sensing data to problems in geophysics. His current emphasis is on interferometric radar for natural hazards, water resources and global environmental problems. He is also active in planetary science. Read the American Geophysical Union (AGU) press release.
