About the Rosenstiel Award
The Rosenstiel Award was created by the Rosenstiel Foundation 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. The award is supported by the Rosenstiel Foundation through the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science of the University of Miami.
The Rosenstiel Award was created under the auspices of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 1971. The AAAS administered the award through the creation of an annual selection panel. In 1980, the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami assumed all responsibility for the selection and designation of the yearly award. There have been 35 awardees.
