Dear All,

Join me to celebrate an eminent scientist who has made meaningful contributions to the global development of our science including in Africa.

Professor Nat Gopalswamy

The American Geophysical Union just announced the 2016 class of fellows made up of 60 individuals that constitute less than 0.1 % of AGU members, and on the list is our own Professor Nat Gopalswamy of NASR Goddard Space Flight Centre.

He was on the forefront of the highly successful IHY campaign alongside Joe Davila and Hans Haubold as far back as 2004 all through 2009. On resignation of Joe Davila, he took the lead of the successor program to IHY, ISWI, and ever since, it has continued to be great with us in Space Weather Community.

He has been to a number of African countries on Space weather programs including Nigeria, Zambia, Kenya, Egypt, Ethiopia, South Africa and host of others. He has organised and rallied support for many African Scientists, space weather schools and workshops in developing nations.

 He just successfully supervised and graduated an Ethiopian female  PhD student in Astronomy whom he assisted with support from his grants in an American University few weeks ago, the 1st in the history of that great nation and 2nd most populous nation in Africa.
He is serving his second term as President of SCOSTEP.
At this moment, all of us at African Geophysical Society celebrate our own Professor Nat and wish him greater heights even as we recognised this well deserved AGU fellowship honour.
