For outstanding contributions to the Solar-Terrestrial Physics through studies on the dynamical effects of the solar wind pressure to the magnetosphere, and to the efforts of the Earth and planetary data preservation and access improvement


Masataka Ando

For outstanding contributions to seismology, in particular the study of recurrent large earthquakes due to plate subduction at trenches


Shunso Ishihara

For outstanding contributions to the formation of different types of granites and accompanied ore minerals
