Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

Lisa Levin, a biological oceanographer at CMBC and former director, will receive the A.C. Redfield Lifetime Achievement award from the Association of the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) on Wednesday.

The Redfield Award honors major, long-term achievements in the fields of limnology (the study of lakes) and oceanography, including research, education, and service to the community and society. The association cited 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 award will be presented in Portland, Oregon at the Ocean Sciences Meeting, which is co-sponsored by ASLO and the American Geophysical Union.
