Congratulations Hale & Harvey Prize Winners 2018

The 2018 George Ellery Hale Prize for outstanding contributions to the field of solar astronomy is awarded to Sarbani Basu for her many seminal contributions to our understanding of the internal structure and dynamics of the Sun and stars.

The 2018 Karen Harvey Prize for a significant contribution to the study of the Sun early in a person's professional career is awarded to Nicholeen Viall for her fundamental contributions to understanding coronal heating and the slow solar wind, and for her valuable service to the science community and the general public.

The prizewinners will give scheduled Prize Lectures, and receive their physical prize certificates, at the upcoming joint SPD/AGU-SPA Triennial Earth–Sun Summit (TESS) meeting in Leesburg, VA (May 20 – 24). Please join us in congratulating Sarbani and Nicki on this well-deserved recognition.
