Congratulations to GESTAR II 610AT Awardees

On December 6, 2023, the 610AT Peer Awards Ceremony was held at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. This ceremony celebrates achievements within the Earth Sciences Division - Atmospheres (Codes 612, 613, and 614). 

Congratulations to the following individuals: 

Daeho Jin (613/UMBC), Best Earth Science Research Results Portal (ESRRP) Entry: For conveying succinctly in the ESRRP format the importance and significance of his paper "QBO deepens MJO convection".

Sergey Korkin (613/UMBC), Best Senior Author Publication: For an elegant and rigorous exposition in the paper "Radiative interaction of atmosphere and surface: Write-up with elements of code" that showed how the matrix-operator method can simulate polarized atmosphere-surface radiative interactions. 
Korkin, S., and A. Lyapustin, 2023, Radiative interaction of atmosphere and surface: Write-up with elements of code, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, 309, 108663 [10.1016/j.jqsrt.2023.108663].

Alfonso Delgado-Bonal (613/UMBC), Best Senior Author Publication: For helping to understand the daytime variability of cloud properties in the paper.  
Delgado-Bonal, A., A. Marshak, L. Oreopoulus, and Y. Yang, 2022, Cloud height daytime variability from DSCOVR/EPIC and GOES-R observations, Frontiers in Remote Sens., 3, [10.3389/frsen.2022.780243].

Daniel Anderson (614/UMBC), Outstanding Performance in Science: For a novel effort to constrain tropospheric hydroxyl radical (OH), the atmosphere's primary oxidant, using NASA EOS's long data records of the drivers of OH.

Yuli Liu (612/UMBC), Outstanding Performance in Science: For outstanding support for simulation framework and algorithm development for the AOS radiometers, CoSSIR and the PoLSIR mission.

Anne Thompson (614/UMBC) as part of the Ozonesonde Team, Distinguished Contribution Group Award: For successful measurement system transition and integration for the NASA/WFF and Natal, Brazil, ozonesonde stations, ensuring the continued high quality of two of the longest-running sites in the world.

Amita Mehta (612/UMBC), Carl Malings (612/MSU), David Barbato (612/UMBC) and Selwyn Hudson-Odoi (612/UMBC) as part of the ARSET Team, Distinguished Contribution Group Award: For increasing the global use and impact of NASA Earth Science through the Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) Program.
