GSFC Scientist Claire Parkinson Elected to American Philosophical Society.

Another renowned scientist at Goddard is taking home a prestigious honor this year. Climate scientist, Dr. Claire L. Parkinson (Code 614.1), is one of the 38 new members elected into the American Philosophical Society (APS). The APS is comprised of top scholars from a wide variety of academic and other disciplines, all organized into five classes. Parkinson has earned a spot in Class 1, which is Mathematical and Physical Sciences. Parkinson, who has been a scientist at Goddard since 1978, has worked extensively on using satellite data to reveal and quantify the decreases in the Arctic sea ice cover over the past three decades and the lesser but still important increases in the Antarctic sea ice cover over the same time period. She is also the project scientist for the Aqua satellite mission and has written books about the history of science, satellite observations, and current climate change issues.
