Jeff Collett and Paul DeMott named AMS Fellows
Jeff Collett and Paul DeMott have been recognized by the American Meteorological Society for “outstanding contributions to the atmospheric or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences or their applications during a substantial period of years.” They will be inducted as fellows at the AMS Centennial Meeting in Boston in January.
“I am honored to have been nominated by my colleagues and appreciate AMS recognition of my work in atmospheric chemistry and air quality over the last three decades,” said Professor and Department Head Jeff Collett. “It has been a personal passion to better integrate atmospheric chemistry with other aspects of atmospheric science here at CSU and through AMS. I have been privileged to work with exceptional colleagues and many outstanding students over the years on a variety of topics ranging from cloud chemistry, to nitrogen deposition, to air quality impacts of unconventional air pollution sources including wildfires and oil and gas development. I am especially pleased to be inducted as a new AMS Fellow together with Paul DeMott.”
“It means a lot to me to be recognized by my colleagues and by AMS in this way,” said Senior Research Scientist Paul DeMott. “AMS was my first ever professional society, and the society supported my early career with travel grants and welcomed my participation on committees as a young scientist who was not in a tenured faculty position. I am thankful to AMS and those who promoted me for this designation.”
Fellows are nominated by AMS members and elected each year by the organization’s council.
AMS is a scientific and professional organization promoting and disseminating information about the atmospheric, oceanic and hydrologic sciences. Its membership includes more than 13,000 researchers, educators, students, enthusiasts, broadcasters, and other professionals in weather, water and climate.
