CIRES' Klaus Wolter, others at NOAA, win Governor's award for high-impact research

Klaus WolterCongratulations to CIRES' Klaus Wolter, in the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, one of four to win the 2013 Governor's Award for High-Impact Research. Wolter was honored for his work in sustainability, specifically for his research into connections between the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and drought, and applying his expertise to support water resource management and drought planning in the state of Colorado and throughout the Southwest. A short video about his work is here.

Peter TanA team of CIRES and NOAA researchers led by NOAA's Pieter Tans also won an impact award, in the category of atmospheric science. Tans and his team of researchers have developed and sustained the careful and continuous collection of atmospheric observations to create a long-term record of atmospheric trace gases that is helping scientists around the globe understand the Earth system and how humans are changing the dynamics of the climate on the Earth.
