Emily Shuckburgh Accepts 2014 Rosenstiel Award
May 05, 2014
She is a fellow of the Royal Meteorology Society and Chair of the Society’s Climate Science Communications Group, a trustee of the Campaign for Science and Engineering and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences and acts as an advisor to the UK Government on behalf of the Natural Environment Research Council.
The Rosenstiel Award, created through a generous endowment from the Rosenstiel Foundation, honors scientists who, in the past decade, have made significant and growing impacts in their field. It is an award that recognizes scientists for their outstanding contributions to marine science, including oceanographically relevant aspects of atmospheric science and fundamental developments in ocean engineering. The award is presented on a rotating basis for achievement in six broad disciplinary areas: meteorology and physical oceanography, marine geology and geophysics, marine and atmospheric chemistry, marine biology and fisheries, applied marine physics, and marine affairs. It is awarded to researchers that are making outstanding scientific contributions during their early to mid career. Shuckburgh was awarded this honor for her outstanding research and for the excellent example she sets of communicating and educating the public about climate.
