Martin Visbeck elected as AGU Fellow

Martin Visbeck, member of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee and past CLIVAR SSG co-chair, has been elected as a 2015 AGU Fellow. The Fellows program pays tribute to those AGU members who have made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences.  Martin has been a very active member of the CLIVAR community for many years, spearheading several major activities and most recently the AtlantOS project,, to optimize and enhance the integrated Atlantic Ocean observing systems.  Martin was a speaker at the CLIVAR town hall at Fall AGU [link to flyer] that took place on December 16.  The event was well attended and provided an opportunity for participants to hear about the latest developments in CLIVAR.
