The Oceanography Society (TOS) congratulates Steven G. Ackleson, Paula S. Bontempi, Amatzia Genin, Robert A. Holman, Eric J. Lindstrom, Clare E. Reimers, and Roger M. Samelson for being selected Fellows of The Oceanography Society. The new TOS Fellows will be honored during a ceremony at the Ocean Sciences Meeting, February 16–20, 2020, in San Diego, California.



Steven G. Ackleson

For fundamental contributions to the understanding of phytoplankton optical properties, radiative transfer models and the development and application of autonomous ocean observing systems


Paula S. Bontempi

For her vision of what satellite-based ocean ecology could be, and tireless efforts to bring that vision to fruition in partnership with the community and space agencies


Amatzia Genin

For original and sustained contributions to biological oceanography, through creative and comprehensive studies testing core hypotheses related to bio-​physical interactions and the functioning of marine ecosystems


Robert A. Holman

For pioneering work on the development of remote sensing tools and advancing the understanding of the world’s evolving coastlines


Eric J. Lindstrom

For leadership of the global community to advance coordinated ocean observing combining space and in situ systems and facilitating the execution of large ocean field campaigns


Clare E. Reimers

For advancing sedimentary redox chemistry and microbiology using oxygen, pH, and pCO2 microelectrodes and leading the development of the next generation of regional class research vessels


Roger M. Samelson

For seminal, wide-ranging contributions on the theory of physical dynamics of the ocean


The origins of TOS are rooted in bringing together and recognizing individuals from all fields of oceanography, representing the broad interests of members in research, engineering, industry, policy, and education, and the diversity and international nature of the society. The main criteria for being elected a TOS Fellow are outstanding and sustained contributions, and devotion to the broad field of oceanography, commensurate with the founding principles of the Society.
