SBC Investigator, John Melack, named AAAS Fellow.
SBC Co-PI John Melack has been elected a 2011 Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to recognize his exceptional scientific contributions. Melack, professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, and in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management said: "Besides being a personal honor, my selection as an AGU Fellow reflects well on the interdisciplinary research environment at UCSB, which encouraged my studies combining ecology, biogeochemistry, hydrology and remote sensing in lakes and wetlands in many parts of the world." Fellows are nominated by AGU members, then reviewed by Section committees and elected by a Committee of Fellows. This honor is bestowed on no more than 0.1% of the membership in any given year. For more information on his research, see John's website.
