ASLO Announces 2018 Award Recipients

Each year, ASLO honors scientists for their achievements in the aquatic sciences. We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 ASLO Awards. The Redfield award will be presented at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in Portland, Oregon in February 2018; the remainder of the awards will be presented at the ASLO Summer Meeting in Victoria, British Columbia in June 2018. More information about individual awardees is available at https://aslo.org/page/2018-award-recipients. Please join us in congratulating this year’s ASLO Award Winners!

The G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award honors a scientist who has made considerable contributions to knowledge in limnology and oceanography, and whose future work promises a continuing legacy of scientific excellence. Emily Stanley (University of Wisconsin, Madison) is the 2018 award winner for her outstanding and synthetic contributions to our understanding of the roles of hydrology and the biogeochemistry of nitrogen and carbon in lake and stream ecology.

The Raymond L. Lindeman Award honoring a young author for an outstanding peer-reviewed, English-language paper in the aquatic sciences is being presented to Meredith Holgerson (Portland State University) for her paper, “Large contribution to inland water CO2 and CH4 emissions from very small ponds,” which advances the understanding of the role of small ponds in the global carbon cycle.

The Alfred C. Redfield Lifetime Achievement Award award honors major, long-term achievements in the fields of limnology and oceanography, including research, education, and service to the community and society. Lisa Levin (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) is the 2018 recipient of the A.C Redfield Award for her extraordinary long-term contributions to understanding the composition and function of seafloor ecosystems, and for her leadership in identifying and communicating anthropogenic pressures on aquatic ecosystems, with relevance to policies for sustainable and healthy seas.

The John H. Martin Award recognizes a paper in aquatic sciences that is judged to have had a high impact on subsequent research in the field. The 2018 Martin Award is for Howarth, R. et al., 1996, Regional nitrogen budgets and riverine nitrogen and phosphorus fluxes for the drainages to the North Atlantic Ocean: natural and human influences (Biogeochemistry 35: 75-139). Howarth et al (1996) presented a unique budget approach for large river basins and documented unambiguously that riverine nitrogen fluxes are positively related to net anthropogenic nitrogen inputs.

The Ramón Margalef Award for Excellence in Education honoring excellence in teaching and mentoring in the fields of limnology and oceanography is awarded to Cynthia Hagley (Minnesota Sea Grant College Program). Hagley is recognized for her vision and success at developing career-long relationships among scientists and educators, for impacting thousands of students, and for making environmental and aquatic data understandable to non-specialists.
