Rosenstiel Award

About the Rosenstiel Award

Lewis The Rosenstiel Award, created in 1971 through an endowment from the Rosenstiel Foundation, honors scientists who in the past decade have made significant and growing impacts in their field.

The award is given annually to one individual on a rotating basis for achievements in five broad disciplinary areas: marine geosciences; atmospheric sciences; marine biology and ecology; ocean sciences and marine ecosystems and society.

The Rosenstiel Award was created to recognize persons who make outstanding contributions either towards the development of ocean science in general, or through personal research and publications towards advancement of the understanding of the oceans, including their boundaries and interfaces, and the underlying phenomena.

When created, the selection and designation of the award was done under the auspices of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In 1980, the UM Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science assumed all responsibility for selecting the awardees.
