2007 Communicator Award goes to glaciologists from Bremerhaven

The Working Group on Glaciology at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, has been awarded this years Communicator Award - Science Award of the Donors' Association. The prize has been awarded to the group of 15 polar and marine researchers working with Professor Heinz Miller, a geophysicist, in recognition of the excellent way in which they have communicated their research on climate change to the general public. The group is the first team of scientists to win the Communicator Award, which is being conferred for the eighth time this year.

The Communicator Award is Germanys highest distinction for the communication of research findings to the general public. It has been awarded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) and the Donors' Association for the Promotion of Sciences and Humanities in Germany since 2000 to scientists and researchers who have communicated their research findings to the general public in a particularly varied, original or creative manner and who have rendered outstanding services to the increasingly important dialogue between the scientific community and the public. The seven winners of the award to date have included mathematician Albrecht Beutelspacher, experimental physicist Wolfgang Heckl, Catholic theologian Hubert Wolf, and last years award went to paleobiologist Friedemann Schrenk, who also conducts research on Africa. The winners are selected by an award panel consisting of science journalists and communications and PR experts. This year they received 27 nominations from all scientific disciplines. Seven of the nominees made the shortlist, but in the end the panel selected the Working Group on Glaciology unanimously.

The team of glaciologists from Bremerhaven is the first to win the Communicator Award. They have been seeking answers to what has become one of the most urgent issues for mankind the development and change to our climate in the etern
