2013 Huntsman Award Announcement

The A.G. Huntsman Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2013 A.G. Huntsman Award will be presented to Dr. Scott Doney of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (http://www.huntsmanaward.org/doney.html).  The award ceremony will take place at 2PM on 28 November 2013 at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. 

Following the ceremony, Dr. Doney will present a distinguished lecture entitled “Rapid climate change along the West Antarctic Peninsula: Impacts from sea-ice to penguins”.
Dr. Doney will be presented the 2013 Huntsman Award, in the category of biological oceanography and fisheries science, to recognize his fundamental contributions to our understanding of the role of ocean biology in global biochemical cycles and for his analysis of the vulnerability of ocean biological processes to global change, particularly ocean acidification.  His leadership in bringing the community's intellectual assets to bear on some of the most pressing scientific problems of our time is exceptional.  He is also recognized for his tireless efforts to educate both students of oceanography and the general public on complex issues related to these changes in the global ocean.  Consequently, his intellectual leadership has and will have dramatic implications to our understanding of the future ocean and its ecosystems.

The A.G. Huntsman Award (www.HuntsmanAward.org) was established by the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in 1980 to recognize excellence of research in, and outstanding contribution to, the marine sciences. The award honours those men and women, of any nationality, who have had, and continue to have, a significant influence on the course of marine scientific thought. It is presented annually in one of three categories: marine geosciences, physical/chemical oceanography, and biological oceanography and fisheries science. The award was created to honour the memory of Archibald Gowanlock Huntsman (1883–1972), pioneer Canadian oceanographer and fishery biologist.
