Three Oregon State University faculty from the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences have been named Fellows for The Oceanography Society: Robert Holman, Clare Reimers and Roger Samelson. The awards were announced May 28.
Holman is being honored for his pioneering work on the development of remote sensing tools and advancing the understanding of the world's evolving coastlines. Reimers has been recognized for advancing sedimentary redox chemistry and microbiology using oxygen, pH and pCO2 microelectrodes and leading the development of the next generation of regional class research vessels. Samelson's seminal, wide-ranging contributions on the theory of physical dynamics of the ocean earned him the award.
