Scripps scientists, diving officer receive honors

Three scientists and a diving officer with Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, recently received distinguished honors from a variety of organizations.

Jeremy Jackson, professor of oceanography with Scrippss Geosciences Research Division and Marine Biology Research Division, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was recognized for "world-class scholarship, teaching, and leadership in marine biology and ecology, ecologic and evolutionary theory, and paleontology."

Jackson, who lives in La Jolla, Calif., is among 185 new Fellows from across the nation and 28 Foreign Honorary Members named to the academy, an international society of the worlds leading scientists, scholars, artists, business people, and public leaders.

John Largier, an associate research oceanographer with the Scripps Marine Life Research Group and the Center for Coastal Studies, has been awarded a fellowship from the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program. Named for environmental scientist Aldo Leopold, the Oregon State University-operated program is designed to improve scientific communication about environmental issues to the media, policy makers, and the private sector.

Largier, whose primary research interests include coastal oceanography and ecology, is one of 20 environmental scientists who will participate in this years third annual Leopold Leadership Program.

"Each of the 22 new fellows is a talented, articulate, and recognized environmental scientist," said Judith Vergun, project director. "They will receive advanced leadership and communication training during the coming year, and improve their ability to share scientific expertise with a broad array of interested parties beyond academia." Largier lives in La Jolla, Calif.

The Navy League of the United States has honored Walter Munk, IGPP research professor of geophysics at Scripps, with the 2001 Albert A. Michelson Award. Bestowe
