L to R: Mr. Gene Dodaro (Comptroller General of the United States, U.S. Government Accountability Office), Dr. Dalia Kirschbaum, and Dr. Kathryn Newcomer (Director of Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, The George Washington University).

Congratulations to Dr. Dalia Kirschbaum of the Hydrological Sciences Laboratory for her 2016 Arthur S. Flemming Award. Named in honor of Arthur S. Flemming, whose civil service spanned seven decades and 11 presidencies, awardees are recognized for excellence in federal service. Dr. Kirschbaum was recognized in the category of Applied Science & Engineering. Her citation reads, "Dr. Kirschbaum works on evaluating rainfall-triggered landslides around the world. She applied satellite-based surface and rainfall information within landslide hazard models to support situational awareness of these hazards in near real time. This technique has been used for disaster response by countries around the world as well as groups such as FEMA, the World Bank, the Pacific Disaster Center and others."
