1 December 2017
Announcing CSD recipients of Scientific Leadership Awards from the Ozone Awards 2017 program, managed under the auspices of the Ozone Secretariat of the Montreal Protocol.
John Daniel and David Fahey shared in the Scientific Leadership Award to the author team received by Guus Velders of the National Instituted for Public Health and the Environment in The Netherlands.
The Velders team wrote a paper (Velders, G.J.M., D.W. Fahey, J.S. Daniel, M. McFarland, and S.O. Andersen, The large contribution of projected HFC emissions to future climate forcing, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, doi:10.1073/pnas.0902817106, 2009) evaluating the future global use of HFCs that set in motion years of negotiation within the Montreal Protocol culminating in the adoption of the Kigali Amendment last year. The amendment will phasedown future global use of HFCs in order to protect climate.
A.R. (Ravi) Ravishankara was awarded an individual Scientific Leadership Award. Ravi retired from CSD several years ago and was a Co-Chair of the Scientific Assessment Panel of the Montreal Protocol while he was NOAA ESRL CSD Director.
The awards were presented at the annual meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in Montreal, Quebec, Canada last week. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Protocol in Montreal.
