On Friday, January 31, 2020, Goddard’s Climate and Radiation Laboratory (Code 613) held its awards ceremony along with a potluck-style luncheon at the Goddard Rec Center. Henry Selkirk (USRA) and Dan Laughlin (MSU) represented GESTAR at the event. Each awardee received a plaque from Lab Chief Dr. Lazaros Oreopoulos and a certificate from GESTAR.


Boon-Sze (Jackson) Tan (GESTAR/USRA) For Best First-Authored Paper:

“For a paper that introduces novel ways to interpret coincident cloud and precipitation observations.”

Citation: Tan, J., and L. Oreopoulos (2019), Subgrid Precipitation Properties of Mesoscale Atmospheric Systems Represented by MODIS Cloud Regimes, J. Clim., 32, 1797–1812, https://doi.org/10.1175/JCLI-D-18-0570.1.  


Guoyong Wen (GESTAR/MSU) For Scientific Leadership Award:

“For leading work of extraordinary breadth that interprets solar radiation signals in the Earth System.”   


Additionally, a fellow with the NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP), which is administered by USRA, Alfonso Delgado-Bonal was recognized with a Code 613 award for Scientific Achievement. Ludovic Brucker (USRA) presented him with a certificate on behalf of the NPP administration:

“For applying original concepts in the analysis of the complexity of the climate system.” (Note, Dr. Delgado-Bonal will be joining GESTAR in February 2020.)


Congratulations to all!
