Dessler, Jimenez, Klein, and Nenes Receive 2012 Atmospheric Sciences Ascent Awards: Citation for Stephen A. Klein

Andrew E. Dessler, Jose L. Jimenez, Stephen A. Klein, and Athanasios Nenes received 2012 Atmospheric Sciences Ascent Awards at the 2012 AGU Fall Meeting, held 3–7 December in San Francisco, Calif. The award recognizes “research contributions by exceptional mid-career scientists in the fields of atmospheric and climate sciences.”



The Atmospheric Sciences section of AGU awards one of the four Ascent Awards to Dr. Stephen Klein of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The award is made for the substantial contributions Dr. Klein has made toward understanding some of the field's most important problems, the interaction of clouds and climate through (as noted in his nomination) “the careful analysis of observations, the insightful use of models of varying complexity and his ability to synthesize diverse strands of knowledge.”
