2020 Wallace S. Broeker Medal Recipient: Dr. Taro Takahashi
The Oceanography Society proudly announces that Dr. Taro Takahashi (deceased 12/3/19) was selected as the first recipient of the Wallace S. Broecker Medal. Dr. Takahashi’s six-decade research career cemented the understanding of global ocean uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions and the biogeochemistry that drives it. He is remembered as an excellent mentor to his colleagues and junior scientists, as well as for his strong conviction that community service is an important part of being a researcher.
Dr. Takahashi’s achievements were recognized during The Oceanography Society’s Honors Ceremony on February 18, 2020, at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, California.
