Robert GellerFor outstanding contributions to seismology through new methods for inverting seismic waveforms for 3-D earth structure and fundamental advances in understanding earthquake sources
Kei HiroseFor outstanding contributions to understanding of the structure, dynamics and evolution of the Earth's deep interior through determination of physical and chemical properties of the mantle and core materials under ultrahigh pressure-temperature conditions
Tetsuo IrifuneFor outstanding contributions to high-pressure Earth sciences, especially in deep mantle mineralogy and dynamics of subducted slab materials using ultrahigh-pressure experiments
Katsuhiko IshibashiFor outstanding contributions to seismology, in particular seismotectonics and historical seismology, and the foresight and warning of earthquake and nuclear disasters
Kenji KonishiFor outstanding contributions to isotope paleontology and coral reef science
Mitsuhiro Matsu’ura for outstanding contributions to solid-earth geophysics, especially mechanics of solid with internal sources, earthquake generation physics, theory of geophysical data inversion and its application, and crustal dynamics in plate subduction zones
Mitsuharu MizukoshiFor outstanding contribution to historical climate reconstruction and historical climatology by publishing weather records from the 11th to 16th century based on numerous historical documents in Japan
Bjorn MysenFor outstanding contributions to experimental petrology especially to understanding the structures, properties, and elemental partitioning behaviors of magmas and fluids at high pressure and temperature, and his continuous initiative for activating JPGU meeting and its international journal, PEPS
Teruyuki NakajimaFor outstanding contributions to understanding of the climate effects of radiation-aerosol-cloud processes and to the advancement and promotion of earth and planetary sciences
Kunihiko ShimazakiFor outstanding contributions to forecasting time and size of large earthquakes on plate boundaries and inland active faults
Danny SummersFor outstanding contributions to the theory and numerical analysis of the interaction of plasma waves with relativistic particles in space plasmas, and thereby to our advanced understanding of the Earth’s radiation belts
Hiroshi TakedaFor outstanding contributions to planetary science, especially understanding of the evolution of planetary materials using mineralogical and crystallographic study of Apollo lunar rocks and meteorites as well as Kaguya lunar mission
Yoshiaki TobaFor outstanding and pioneering contribution to ocean-atmosphere momentum and material exchange processes, and to the development of satellite remote-sensing of ocean surface winds
