In addition to receiving the Jerlov Award medal and gold lapel pin, Ken received a certificate from The Oceanography Society citing his pioneering work on in situ optical measurements of particles and dissolved matter, and the development of underwater imaging systems, including holographic systems for measuring particle dynamics; his many contributions to ocean color remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging; and his teaching and mentoring of students and postdoctoral fellows both at the University of South Florida and in the ocean optics classes with Mary Jane Perry.
