AGU Fellows from the Ocean Sciences Section – 2010


  • David Archer, University of Chicago.  For ‘contribution to understanding the global carbon cycle on all time-scales and its relation to climate past and present’.
  • Harry Bryden, University of Southampton.  For ‘his fundamental contributions in understanding the ocean’s role in maintaining the global climate system’.
  • Mark Brzezinski, University of California, Santa Barbara.  For ‘seminal advances in our understanding of the biogeochemistry of silicon in the sea and for developing a new radioisotope of silica’.
  • Eric D‘Asaro, University of Washington.  For ‘outstanding contributions to physical oceanography and especially the development and imaginative use of Lagrangian floats’.
  • Richard Dugdale, San Francisco State University.  For ‘pioneering work on nitrogen and silicon biogeochemistry and the mathematical foundation for ecosystem modeling in the ocean’.
  • Zhengyu Liu, University of Wisconsin – Madison.  For ‘pioneering work on decadal oceanic and climate variability, and coupled atmosphere-ocean-biosphere processes in past and future climate changes’.
  • Robie Macdonald, Institute of Ocean Sciences.  For ‘fundamental contributions in the distributions and pathways of carbon, freshwater and contaminants in aquatic systems and to and his inspirational leadership within his community’.
  • Stefan Rahmstorf, Potsdam University.  For ‘his numerous fundamental contributions to advancing our knowledge in key areas such as ocean circulation variability, mechanisms of rapid climate change, and processes controlling sea level rise, and for his outstanding outreach and service to the profession and society’.
  • Dean Roemmich, Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  For ‘his ground-breaking contributions to research on the global heat and salt budgets and for his leadership role in the creation of the global ocean climate observatory, Argo’.
  • William Sunda, NOAA Beaufort Laboratory.  For ‘his pioneering research on trace metal-biological interactions in the oceans’.
  • James Syvitski, Univ. of Colorado at Boulder.  For ‘his outstanding scientific achievements in the development of physically-based surface process sedimentary models across a myriad of scales; for his vision and leadership in conceiving and directing the open-source Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System program; and for his selfless dedication in encouraging researchers on sedimentary processes to work together so that the group achieves far more than the sum of the individuals’.
