AGU Fellows from the Ocean Sciences Section – 2011


  • Ronald H. Benner, University of South Carolina, Columbia.  For “innovative and seminal contributions in understanding the biogeochemistry of marine dissolved organic carbon”.
  • Donald E. Canfield, University of Southern Denmark, Odense.  For “outstanding contributions to understanding the biogeochemical cycling of sulfur and the oxygenation of the Earth’s atmosphere”.
  • Kenneth S. Johnson, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.  For “elegant contributions to in situ sensor development which allow enhanced understanding of biogeochemical processes at unprecedented temporal and spatial scales”.
  • James R. Ledwell, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  For “seminal studies of turbulent-ocean and air-sea-exchange processes based on tracer release experiments”.
  • W. Timothy Liu, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology.  For “exceptional contributions to understanding air-sea interactions and to promoting the use of spaceborne scatterometry”.
  • Charles A. Nittrouer, School of Oceanography, University of Washington.  For “important contributions to understanding marine sedimentary systems and for his leadership in guiding international programs in marine sedimentary research”.
  • Maureen E. Raymo, Boston University.  For “leading Paleoceanography and paleoclimatology in numerous, comparably important directions”.
  • Frank J. Wentz, Remote Sensing Systems.  For “pioneering and sustained innovative contributions to microwave remote sensing of the ocean and atmosphere and his definitive contributions to research on climate change and air-sea interaction”.
