Four scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are being honored with awards by two prominent organizations in Earth system science: the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The four NCAR scientists — Clara Deser, Andrew Heymsfield, Everette Joseph, and Isla Simpson — are being recognized for landmark research into the atmosphere and climate system.
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program is also receiving the Excellence in Earth and Space Science Education award from AGU. GLOBE is a community program of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
“I want to congratulate this year’s awardees for their essential work in Earth system science, and I am very pleased to see them recognized in this regard,” said UCAR President Antonio J. Busalacchi. “NCAR’s legacy of recognition from both AGU and AMS speaks to the quality of our research and its importance to furthering science that is vitally important to society. I am also pleased to see the GLOBE program, which has provided enriching educational opportunities for over 25 years, being honored for its excellence.”
Deser and GLOBE will be recognized at the AGU Fall Meeting this week, while the other three scientists will be recognized at the AMS Annual Meeting next month.
