Hood Wins 2015 Eugene M. Shoemaker Communication Award
Kristin Timm of UAF, Shad O’Neel of the U.S. Geological Survey Alaska Science Center, and Eran Hood received the 2015 Eugene M. Shoemaker Communication Award for their poster From Icefield to Ocean. This national award recognizes USGS products "that demonstrate extraordinary effectiveness in communicating and translating complex scientific concepts and discoveries into words and pictures that capture the interest and imagination of the American public". The poster demonstrates the relationships between Alaska’s coastal glaciers, marine habitats, ocean currents, fisheries, and other organisms and economic activities. The work was supported by the Alaska Climate Science Center as part of Eran’s project, Implications of Glacier Change in Alaska.
