Friday, Oct 15, 2021

AOS Faculty Member V. “Ram” Ramaswamy, the director of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), has been named a 2021 fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) "for pioneering research on radiative transfer in the climate system, especially regarding the impacts of anthropogenic changes in carbon dioxide and ozone on stratospheric dynamics, and the effects of aerosols on tropospheric temperatures and the hydrological cycle."

The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or physics education. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society’s membership (excluding student members) is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow of the American Physical Society.
