Professor Sposito has been elected a Fellow of six international scientific societies and has been a Fulbright Lecturer (Theoretical Physics) as well as a Guggenheim Fellow (Applied Mathematics). He received the Soil Science Research Award from the Soil Science Society of America, and in 2008 was designated a “Legend in Environmental Chemistry” by the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific organization. He is the recipient of three hydrologic science honors bestowed by the American Geophysical Union, the world's largest earth science organization, including its Robert E. Horton Medal, for "outstanding contributions to the geophysical aspects of hydrology;" the Hydrologic Sciences Award of its Hydrology Section, for "outstanding contributions to the science of hydrology;" and the Walter B. Langbein Lectureship, "awarded for contributions to the basic science of hydrology." A Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Excellence laureate, he is also the only person to receive campus-wide Distinguished Teaching Awards from both state university systems in California.
