Shukla Honoured

Jagadish Shukla, who was instrumental in the creation of ICTP’s weather and climate research activities and then led the activities from their inception in 1988 until 1997, has received the American Meteorological Society’s (AMS) 2005 Carl-Gustaf Rossby Research Medal.

AMS’s Rossby Medal is presented to individuals for their outstanding contributions to the understanding of the structure or behavior of the atmosphere. The award represents the highest honor that the society gives to an atmospheric scientist.

Shukla, who is currently professor of physics at George Mason University Fairfax, Virginia, and head of the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies in Calverton, Maryland (a non-profit research centre supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation), is being honoured for “fundamental contributions and inspired leadership in understanding the variability and predictability of the climate system on seasonal to interannual time scales.”

The award will be presented in January 2005 at the Society’s 85th Annual Meeting, in San Diego, California, USA.
