Shaw Wins 2011 Holton Award
Prof. Tiffany Shaw, who holds joint appointments in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, has won the 2011 James R. Holton Award from the American Geophysical Union (AGU). She will be recognized at the Atmospheric Sciences Banquet on December 6, 2011 in San Francisco at the Annual AGU Meeting.
In 2004, the Atmospheric Sciences Section of the AGU established a Section Award for junior Atmospheric Scientists, the James R. Holton Award. The Holton Award recognizes outstanding scientific research and accomplishments of early-career scientists in the field. This award is named in honor of James R. Holton, an outstanding atmospheric scientist, educator, and mentor. During his 38 years on the faculty at the University of Washington, he taught, advised and mentored a large number of students and junior scientists, and was awarded every major honor available in the atmospheric sciences including AGU's Revelle Medal. The Award consists of a certificate, $1000, and dinner at the Section Banquet during the Fall Meeting, where the award will be presented.
