Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies recently voted "The role of long-lived greenhouse gases as principal LW control knob that governs the global surface temperature for past and future climate change" by Andrew Lacis, James Hansen, Gary Russell, Valdar Oinas and Jeffery Jonas as the top work among over 150 research publications by institute staff published in 2013. The paper appeared in the journal Tellus B in September. Runners-up included "Historical and future black carbon deposition on the three ice caps: Ice-core measurements and model simulations from 1850 to 2100" by Susanne Bauer et al. and "Natural air-sea flux of CO2 in simulations of the NASA-GISS climate model: Sensitivity to the physical ocean model formulation" by Anastasia Romanou et al.

Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies recently voted "Simultaneously mitigating near-term climate change and improving human health and food security" by Drew Shindell et al. as the top work among over 100 research publications by institute staff published in 2012. The paper was published in the journal Science in January. Runners-up included "Perception of climate change" by James Hansen et al.; " Aerosol direct, indirect, semi-direct and surface albedo effects from sector contributions based on the IPCC AR5 emissions for pre-industrial and present day conditions" by Susanne Bauer and Surabi Menon; "The added value to global model projections of climate change by dynamical downscaling: A case study over the continental US using the GISS-ModelE2 and WRF models" by Pavan Racherla et al.; and "Adjustment to radiative forcing in a simple coupled ocean-atmosphere model" by Ron Miller.

Anthony Del Genio Elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union

01/23/2012
Congratulations to Dr. Anthony Del Genio, Goddard Institute for Space Studies, for being named a 2012 Fellow of the American Geophysical Union. To be elected a Fellow of AGU is a special tribute for those who have made exceptional scientific contributions. Nominated Fellows must have attained acknowledged eminence in the Earth and space sciences. Primary criteria for evaluation in scientific eminence are major breakthrough/discovery and paradigm shift. This designation is conferred upon not more than 0.1% of all AGU members in any given year. New Fellows are chosen by a Committee of Fellows.

Gavin Schmidt Receives AGU Climate Communications Award

10/19/2011
In recognition of his exceptional work as a climate communicator, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) has selected Gavin Schmidt as the recipient of its inaugural Climate Communications Prize. Schmidt is a climate scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and co-founder of RealClimate.org, a blog that covers areas of science related to climate-from present-day measurements to paleoclimate proxies, from natural climate variation to anthropogenic change. Schmidt has also worked with photographers on a popular science book, on museum exhibits, and on online courses and has often appeared on TV and radio and in print. The award, which was established by AGU earlier this year, recognizes excellence in climate communication as well as the promotion of scientific literacy, clarity of messaging, and efforts to foster respect and understanding for science-based values related to climate change.

GISS Scientists Choose Best Paper of 2010

04/08/2011
Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies recently voted "Atmospheric CO2: Principal control knob governing Earth's temperature" by Andrew Lacis et al. as the top work among over 100 research publications by institute staff published in 2010. The paper was published in the journal Science in October. Runners-up included "Global surface temperature change", by James Hansen et al., and "Black carbon absorption effects on cloud cover: Review and synthesis" by Dorothy Koch and Anthony Del Genio.

06/28/2010
Dr. James Hansen, Director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is one of two prominent climate scientists selected for the 2010 Blue Planet Prize, an international environmental award which is considered to be Japan's equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

GISS Scientists Choose Best Paper of 2009

05/07/2010
Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies recently voted "Saturn atmospheric structure and dynamics" by Dr. Anthony Del Genio et al. as the top work among over 100 publications by institute staff published in 2009. The paper was included in the book Saturn from Cassini-Huygens.

Runners-up for the award included "Climate forcing by the on-road transportation and power generation sectors" by Unger et al., "How will Earth's surface temperature change in future decades?" by Lean and Rind, and "Seasonal contrasts in the surface energy balance of the Sahel" by Miller et al.

Jim Hansen awarded the 2010 Sophie Prize

04/07/2010
Dr. Jim Hansen, Director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, has been awarded the 2010 Sophie Prize. This is an annual international award for environment and sustainable development. It is awarded to one or several persons, or an organization, which has created awareness of alternatives to modern-day development and/or initiated such alternatives in a pioneering or particularly inventive manner. Jim Hansen receives the award for his clear communication of the threat posed by climate change and for his genuine commitment to future generations.
