From the SPA NEwsletter Announcement written by James A. Klimchuk :

'SPA Section has an honorary lecture series called the Bowie Lectures, consisting of the Nicolet Lecture for aeronomy and ionospheric physics, the Van Allen Lecture for magnetospheric physics, and the Parker Lecture for solar and heliospheric physics. Two lectures are presented each year at the Fall AGU meeting. This year it is the Nicolet and Parker Lectures in the rotation. It is my great pleasure to announce that the 26-member SPA Executive Committee (officers, committee chairs, journal editors) has selected Ray Greenwald for the Nicolet Lecture and Nancy Crooker for the Parker Lecture. Congratulations to Ray and Nancy! Please plan to attend their interesting talks in December.'

Ray was made an AGU Fellow in 2002.
