Geochemist Tom Guilderson wins E.O. Lawrence Award for radiocarbon work
Date:11/29/2011

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Geochemist Tom Guilderson has been named a winner of the Department of Energy's prestigious Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award, Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced today.

Guilderson is being honored for ground-breaking radiocarbon measurements of corals, advancements in understanding the paleo-history of ocean currents and ocean processes revealing past climate variability, and the explanation of how physical and biogeochemical oceanic processes affect the global carbon cycle.

The award honors mid-career scientists and engineers for exceptional contributions in research and development supporting the Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration and its mission to advance the national, economic and energy security of the United States.

Guilderson is the senior research scientist in the natural carbon research group at the Laboratory's Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry and a lecturer and researcher in the Department of Ocean Sciences and Institute of Marine Sciences at University of California, Santa Cruz.

CAMS Director Graham Bench was part of a committee that nominated Guilderson for the award.

"There are things in particular that set Tom apart from everyone else," Bench said. "He is absolutely dedicated to rigorous scientific research and he is an excellent mentor to up and coming scientists."

Guilderson received his bachelor's degree in marine science (cum laude and with honors) from the University of South Carolina in 1987, after which he spent two years working in the Department of Geological Sciences' Stable Isotope Laboratory. He spent the next few years (when he wasn't out to sea on experimental missions) at Columbia University and Lamont Doherty Earth (Geological) Observatory obtaining his masters' degrees and PhD. at Princeton and Harvard universities. He rounded out his postdoctoral at CAMS prior to becoming a full-time CAMS researcher.
