Professor Dara Entekhabi has been selected by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) to receive the 2015 Hydrologic Sciences Award. Entekhabi is widely regarded as a leader in the exploration of the intricate processes that occur at the land-atmosphere boundary. His research focuses on the disciplines of hydrology, meteorology, and Earth remote sensing, with a specialized interest in the interactions between the land and atmosphere, as well as their role in hydrology and meteorology. “I was fortunate to enter this field at a revolutionary time,” said Entekhabi. “Hydrology as a geoscience marked a milestone the year I started as a young faculty. [The award] is a collective gratitude since the cited efforts all result from collaboration with colleagues and students. I stand as a proxy for them.” Read the article here.
