Congratulations Anne Thompson, 2018 Nordberg Award Winner

06.29.2018
We are thrilled to announce the selection of Anne Thompson as the 2018 Nordberg Award winner. Anne’s incredibly wide ranging research and service, nationally and internationally, makes her such a deserving recipient of this award. Although her research focuses on tropospheric chemistry, it has spanned a broad realm of Earth Science, including seminar work in air/sea exchange of trace gases, the importance of stratosphere-troposphere exchange for ozone, and the interconnection of atmospheric composition and climate. Anne has spent a large part of her time in the chemistry lab as well as in the field, characterizing the distribution of tropospheric ozone from satellites and ground-based measurements.

Anne has been President of the Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution where she led efforts to coordinate global research. She is Co-Chair of the Steering Committee for the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change. Anne is a Fellow of the AMS, AGU and AAAS and she has been elected President of the Atmospheric Sciences Section of the AGU and AMS Councils.

Anne engages people and brings them together to form measurement networks. She has been a driving force in forging the link between ground, suborbital and satellite observations in ozone. Somehow, Anne has also managed to put the training of young scientists in the US and abroad on the front-burner as well. Her research has resulted in more than 260 referred papers and an H-index of >54. Anne is a leader of people, technology and science.

Congratulations Anne!

Claire Parkinson has been elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Founded in 1780, the American Academy serves the nation as a champion of scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge. As one of the country’s oldest learned societies and independent policy research centers, the Academy convenes leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing the nation and the world.

Congratulations Claire!

World Resources Institute and National Geographic Society launch of Resource Watch

04.11.2018
Stephanie Schollaert Uz was an invited partner to the World Resources Institute launch of Resource Watch at the National Geographic in Washington, DC. 'Open Data in a Closing World’ showcased examples of using Resource Watch to monitor the planet’s pulse using NASA and other data in a user-friendly portal that can be easily shared. The event included accomplished speakers and engaging panel discussions on using technology toward a sustainable future and how to use data to convey narratives from the numbers.

Overview

The Earth Sciences Division at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center plans, organizes, evaluates, and implements a broad program of research on our planet's natural systems and processes. Major focus areas include climate change, severe weather, the atmosphere, the oceans, sea ice and glaciers, and the land surface.

To study the planet from the unique perspective of space, the Earth Science Division develops and operates remote-sensing satellites and instruments. We analyze observational data from these spacecraft and make it available to the world's scientists. Our Education and Public Outreach efforts raise public awareness of the Division's research and its benefits to society.
