CIRES scientsts

Four CIRES experts were critical to work just awarded a Department of Commerce Silver Medal! NCEI's Kelly Stroker and colleagues in the National Weather Service received commendation: “for producing high-resolution topographic-bathymetric Digital Elevation Models, informing coastal inundation models for tsunami and hurricane hazards.”

The Department of Commerce Silver Medal recognizes exceptional performance characterized by noteworthy or superlative contributions that have a direct and lasting impact within the Department. Non-federal scientists cannot receive DOC medals, but CIRES will recognize team members Kelly Carignan, Matt Love, Chris Amante, Nic Arcos with a CIRES Silver Medal at our annual Rendezvous science symposium in 2020.
