Wallace S. Broecker wins the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in Climate Change
Date:1/13/2009

oss ocean basins (the thermohaline circulation, also known as the oceanic heat conveyor belt).

In the words of the award certificate, Broecker's "seminal" research into the oceans' biological and chemical processes "pioneered the development of Earth System Science as the basis for understanding global climate change, both past and present". It also highlights "his holistic approach", which has led him to identify "the mechanisms of abrupt climate change".

"Prof. Broecker has been an eloquent educator and a forceful champion of efforts to address the risks of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities", concludes the jury in its resolution.

Wallace S. Broecker, born in 1931, is a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University (New York). The author of some 400 scientific articles and numerous books, he was one of the first scientists to confirm the importance of air-sea interaction in climate regulation through CO2 exchange.

The jury deciding the winner in this inaugural edition was chaired by Edward S. Rubin (Carnegie Mellon University United States). Its members are leading international experts working in areas related to climate study: Kenneth J. Davis (Pennsylvania State University and director of the Institute Center for Advanced Carbon Research and Education United States); Hans J. Schellnhuber (Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research - Germany); Bjorn Stevens (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology - Germany); and the Spaniards Carlos Duarte (Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies, CSIC University of the Balearic Islands) and Sergio Alonso (University of the Balearic Islands).
