To the Anteater community:
I am delighted to announce that James Randerson – whose studies on the relationships among humans, ecosystems and the environment have advanced our understanding of the effects of climate change – has been elected to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences.
He is one of 84 new members and 21 foreign associates welcomed this year by the academy, which was founded in 1863. Considered one of the highest honors in science, NAS membership is based on distinguished and continued achievements in original research.
James’ important work on the global carbon cycle, wildfires and climate change has been instrumental in efforts to sustainably manage ecosystems, and I’m pleased to say he will soon helm UCI’s new Center for Geospatial Data Solutions for Climate & the Environment.
Please join me in congratulating him on this outstanding accomplishment.
