MBL scientist Bruce Peterson wins ASLO Lifetime Achievement Award
Date:2/15/2013

ing used as a prototype in the National Ecological Observatory Network, a National Science Foundation-funded observation system that will gather ecological and climate data over the next 30 years at more than 60 terrestrial and aquatic observatory sites across the U.S.

"Bruce has been, from the beginning, a wonderfully creative thinker about how ecosystems work," said Christopher Neill, Director of the MBL Ecosystems Center. "He thinks big and then engages others to think big with him. He's demonstrated that over and over again in his career."

Dr. Peterson also pioneered the tracer approach to investigation of the nitrogen cycle of streams. The technique, first developed for an experiment in the Kuparuk River, has transformed the study of streams and is now used worldwide. "That one experiment has led to many experiments around the world that use this approach," says Dr. Peterson. "I've been really fortunate in that regard, some of the experiments that I have developed with MBL colleagues and others have spawned whole networks of researchit's a real joy."

According to Dr. Peterson, a particularly rewarding part of his career has been working with Russian collaborators to study the freshwater cycle of the Arctic. "I lived during the Cold War and drills at school had us preparing for a nuclear attack," said Dr. Peterson, "My dad was an expert in anti-submarine warfare and spent his career tracking Russian submarines. So, it was particularly gratifying to travel to the great rivers of northern Russia and find that Russian scientists were willing to share information and help us understand global change in the Arctic." Now known as the Arctic Great Rivers Observatory, the NSF-funded project has made fundamental advances in the understanding of land-ocean interactions in the Arctic and has set the baseline against which to judge future changes in the Arctic.

Dr. Peterson received a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from Bates College in
