HANOVER, N.H.—ERDC-CRREL Scientist Dr. Don Perovich was recently elected a fellow by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fellows Committee for his fundamental work in sea ice optics and understanding of the ice-albedo feedback to the climate now active in Arctic sea ice regions. 

Perovich has made significant contributions that have served the cryospheric and earth sciences communities for more than three decades.

His primary research highlights the interaction of solar radiation with sea ice and its importance in the climate system through processes of ice-albedo feedback, making key links between field, laboratory and theoretical modeling work. His peers particularly applaud his ability to clearly explain these complex changes in sea ice, as he has demonstrated in numerous public forums, television interviews, periodicals and books.

The AGU selects fewer than one percent of all members – currently more than 62,000 from 144 countries – in any given year as fellows.
