School of Earth, Ocean & Environment Professor elected 2016 Sustaining Fellow

Dr. Claudia Benitez-Nelson, a Distinguished Professor in the School of the Earth, Ocean & Environment, has been elected a Sustaining Fellow of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography.

The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), as it exists today was established in 1948, and holds a mission to foster a diverse international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, and advances public awareness and education. ASLO began its Sustaining Fellows program in 2015 to honor members who have contributed exceptional research and service to the association.

Now in its second year, the ASLO Sustaining Fellows program has named Dr. Claudia Benitez-Nelson as one of their 30 fellows. Dr. Benitez-Nelson became a member of ASLO in 2001, and has upheld the association’s mission by contributing research and publications and serving as a Member-at-Large from 2012-2015.

The 2016 ASLO Fellows will be recognized at a meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii in February 2017.
