Barbara Romanowicz is being recognized with the Emil Wiechert Medal from the German Geophysical Society (Deutsche Geophysikalische Gesellschaft, DGG) for outstanding contributions to the field of geophysics. The DGG was founded through the initiative of seismologist Emil Wiechert after whom the medal is named. More about Emil Wiechert https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emil_Wiechert
Barbara was also elected a fellow of IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics), to be awarded at the every-4-year General Assembly in Montreal this summer. She receives this honor for her seminal contributions in seismological studies from crust to inner core, including obtaining robust 3-D models of inelasticity on a global scale, locating origin of Earth’s hum and launching GEOSCOPE, the first global broadband seismograph network.
