Steven C. Wofsy, the Abbott Lawrence Rotch Professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been awarded the 2012 Roger Revelle Medal by the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The Revelle medal is awarded annually to an individual who has contributed in an outstanding manner to the understanding of Earth’s climate systems.

Wofsy, who has been at Harvard since 1973, focuses on the long-term measurement of atmospheric processes and composition. His studies include observations on carbon exchange, deposition of pollutants, and other atmospheric phenomena over long periods of time to investigate patterns not readily apparent in short-term data.
