This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Go to your profile and click on the badge. It takes to to a page that explains what the badge was awarded for – ChrisF Jul 19 '12 at 9:52

You can see a list of badges and a brief explanation on the badges page - http://stackoverflow.com/badges

As @chrisF mentioned - you can also click on the badge to go to a page with users that have been awarded that badge and also a short description.

For a more indepth explanation, you can check out this post - List of all badges with full descriptions
