Climate Feedback

Heinz award to Chris Field

One of this year’s Heinz awards – a $100,000 prize for achievement in environmental science and leadership – is going to Chris Field, the Stanford ecologist and leading carbon-cycle expert who became co-chair of IPCC Working Group 2 in 2008.

“Chris Field receives a Heinz Award for his contributions towards understanding the impacts of climate change on Earth’s ecosystems, as well as for his national and international leadership in bringing science to the policy process,” the Heinz foundation said. “He has played a critical role in the emergence of global ecology as a unique discipline, applying it to diverse questions concerning the scientific foundations for a sustainable future.”

Congratulations to Chris!
