James Cameron to be publicly honored with Scripps Nierenberg Prize
Date:5/15/2013

Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest was created through a gift from the Nierenberg family to honor the memory of William A. Nierenberg. The prize, which includes a bronze medal and $25,000, is awarded each year for outstanding contributions to science in the public interest. Nierenberg was a leading expert in several fields of underwater research and warfare, and was known for his work in low-energy nuclear physics. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1971 and was the recipient of numerous awards and honors for professional research and public service. Past Nierenberg Prize winners are: Daniel Pauly (2012), Ira Flatow (2010), Richard Dawkins (2009), James Hansen (2008), J. Craig Venter (2007), Gordon E. Moore, Ph.D. (2006), Sir David Attenborough, OM (Order of Merit) (2005), Dame Jane Goodall (2004), Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D. (2003), Walter Cronkite (2002), and E.O. Wilson, Ph.D. (2001).

More on Scripps and deep-sea discoveries

With its decades-long history of deep-sea exploration, Scripps is recognized as a world leader in investigating the science of the deep ocean, from exploring the deep's geological features, researching its exotic marine life inhabitants, to development of the requisite sensor and sampling technologies.

Scripps's history in exploring the deepest regions of the ocean dates back to the 1950s and '60s, when Scripps research geologist Robert Fisher meticulously mapped the Mariana Trench's deepest points. He employed innovative sounding techniques to firmly establish Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench as the deepest point in the world's oceans. In 1952 Fisher identified Horizon Deep in the Tonga Trench as the second-deepest point in the oceans and the deepest spot in the Southern Hemisphere.

This work set the stage for the famous dive of Swiss oceanographer Jacques Piccard and U.S. Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh aboard the bathyscaphe Trieste in the first manned voyage to the bo
