Carnegie's Greg Asner elected to National Academy of Sciences
Date:4/30/2013

Washington, D.C.Carnegie staff scientist Greg Asner has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. He is one of 84 new members and 21 foreign associates from 14 countries elected "in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research." The total number of active members now stands at 2,179.

Asner was hired in 2001 as the Department of Global Ecology's first staff scientist. Since coming to Carnegie, Asner has pioneered new methods for investigating tropical deforestation, degradation, ecosystem diversity, invasive species, carbon emissions, climate change, and much more using satellite and airborne instrumentation. His innovations measure the chemistry, structure, biomass, and biodiversity of the Earth in unprecedented detail over massive areas not thought possible before. He has developed new technologies for conservation assessments, including tropical forest carbon emissions and stocks, hydrologic function and biodiversity. He leads the CLASLite forest change mapping project, spectranomics biodiversity project, and the one-of-a-kind Carnegie Airborne Observatory.

"Greg's research has enormous international significance," commented Carnegie president Richard A. Meserve. "He fulfills Andrew Carnegie's original vision of enabling gifted researchers to follow independent paths to pursue extraordinary discoveries. The institution is extremely proud of his accomplishments."

Director of the Department of Global Ecology Chris Field remarked, "Greg does it all. He designs the tools, develops the methods, makes the scientific discoveries, identifies the applications, and then teaches stakeholders how to take full advantage. Greg's work is the blueprint for effective solutions-oriented science."

Asner received his bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder in environmental engineering, biogeography, and environmental biology, respectively. In 2006, his researc
