TOS EARLY CAREER AWARDS CEREMONY
Celebrating Excellence in Ocean Science
Sea-Bird Scientific and TOS hosted a virtual awards ceremony honoring April Abbott and James Watson, recipients of the 2021 TOS Early Career Awards.
This event highlighted the ability of scientific societies and the private sector to come together to promote and highlight the science that is driving our understanding of key global questions, such as climate change, complexities in our oceanic environment, and international resource management. It also showcased the diversity in the type of research being done that is driving change across the globe.
April Abbott set the stage in showcasing the complexity in generating a holistic view of oceanic conditions, utilizing a detailed analysis of her chemical oceanographic research, which focused on utilizing Neodynium to trace water mass circulation.
James Watson helps put research such as April’s into perspective on a global scale – bettering our understanding of the implications of our changing ocean climate. From phytoplankton dispersion to the complexity and interconnectedness of our global food webs, James explains how we can better facilitate global oceanic resource management and allocation.
