Three researchers from the Faculty of Arts & Science have received honours from the American Geophysical Union (AGU) for their outstanding contributions to Earth and space sciences.

Debra Wunch, an associate professor in the Department of Physics and a cross-appointed member of the School of the Environment, received the AGU’s Atmospheric Sciences Ascent Award, which recognizes early- to mid-career researchers. Wunch’s leadership and scholarship have played a central role in enabling large space-based remote sensing efforts of greenhouse gases. She is making great strides to improve our understanding of greenhouse gases and the atmospheric and human processes that regulate their concentrations.

The American Geophysical Union is a diverse and inclusive global organization of half a million advocates and professionals in the Earth and space sciences. Its goal is to advance discovery and solution science through programs that include scholarly publishing, convening virtual and in-person events and providing career support.
