Professor Debra Wunch has been honored by the Royal Society of Canada for her pathbreaking leadership in the discipline of physics. Members of the RSC's College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists are selected for demonstrating exceptional accomplishment.
Debra Wunch is an atmospheric physicist who plays a leading role in the development and use of remotely sensed measurements of greenhouse gases. She has fostered the development of a global network of instruments that occupies a critical niche between in-situ and space-based measurements of carbon dioxide and methane. Her research on greenhouse gas emission sources and natural sinks provides new insights into the global carbon cycle.
Each appointee receives a seven-year membership in the College, which recognizes and supports academic leadership and collaboration among those who have received their PhDs within the last 15 years.
