Scott Doney, senior scientist and director of the Ocean and Climate Change Institute at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, has been awarded the 2013 A. G. Huntsman Award for Excellence in Marine Science, which the Royal Society of Canada grants to an oceanographer “who has made significant contributions in the fields of marine geosciences, physical or chemical oceanography, or biological and fisheries oceanography.” The citation notes that the award is “in recognition of his fundamental contributions to our understanding of the role of ocean biology in global biochemical cycles; for his analysis of the vulnerability of ocean biological processes to global change, particularly ocean acidification; for his leadership in bringing the community's intellectual assets to bear on some of the most pressing scientific problems of our time; and for his tireless efforts to educate both students of oceanography and the general public on complex issues related to changes in the global ocean.”
