Winners named for the 2011 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards
Date:11/9/2011

on category. A team from KQED, San Francisco, looked at the potential impact of sea level rise on the San Francisco Bay. The QUEST/Climate Watch co-production "used the visual medium of television effectively as it laid out the facts―and uncertainties―surrounding rising sea levels," said Richard Harris, a science correspondent for NPR who served as a judge.

After considerable deliberation, the judges decided to give two awards this year for in-depth reporting in the television category. The awards go to a WGBH/NOVA team for "Japan's Killer Quake" and to Mark Davis for "Death of a Mars Rover" on the National Geographic Channel.

In the online category, PBS NOVA Online's "Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers" offers a sometimes surprising look at the avocations and enthusiasms of researchers who pursue the mysteries of science. William Saletan, who covers science for Slate, called the winning entry "a delightfully engaging, visually creative series that illuminates the intrigues and texture of science through the personalities of its people."

Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the journal Science, said the 2011 awards "show that journalists are providing excellent coverage of science, both locally and beyond, even as resources at many news organizations continue to be stretched."
