Congratulations to two of our CIRES Fellows, Peter Molnar and Craig Jones (CU Boulder Geological Sciences) who received awards at the 2018 Geological Society of America meeting this week! Peter Molnar—International Distinguished Career Award, and Craig Jones—Structural Geology and Tectonics Division, Outstanding publication award!
Congrats to the Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) run by CIRES Education & Outreach. CLEAN was named an Exemplary Project by the Goldin Foundation for Excellence in Education!
The Wind Forecast Improvement Project-2, a Department of Energy and NOAA-led project, earned the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) Far West Region Award for Outstanding Partnership. The team, including federal and cooperative institute scienctists, "successfully leveraged resources, instruments, and researchers across all NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) Divisions, the NOAA Air Resources Laboratory Field Research Division, other federal agencies, private companies, and universities research leading to improved forecasts of wind to support the renewable energy industry. CIRES recipients include: Jaymes Kenyon, Joe Olson, Laura Bianco, Kathy Lantz, Chuck Long, Yelena Pichugina, Terra Ladwig, Eric James, Katie McCaffrey, Irina Djalalova, Aditya Choukulkar, Tim Bonin, and Brandi McCarty.
Congrats to NSIDC scientist Dr. Shari Fox Gearheard and the team behind the research project and book, “The Meaning of Ice,” they were awarded the inaugural Mohn Prize in Tromso, Norway. The International Mohn Prize recognizes “outstanding research related to the Arctic” and comes with an award of 2 million Norwegian Kroner. The project made “groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of Arctic ice-dominated systems via a highly innovative combination of natural science, social science and Indigenous knowledge.”
Congrats to our stellar CIRES Education & Outreach team involved in Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network—CLEAN won the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) 2017 Friend of the Planet award.
