MBL scientist Bruce Peterson wins ASLO Lifetime Achievement Award
Date:2/15/2013

MBL, WOODS HOLE, MADr. Bruce J. Peterson, a senior scholar at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) has been selected by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) to receive the 2013 Alfred C. Redfield Lifetime Achievement Award. The award honors the career achievements of an aquatic scientist whose work is recognized for its importance and long-term influence. Dr. Peterson is being honored for "innovative and transformative studies of carbon, nutrient, and water cycles at process, ecosystem, and global scales." He will receive the award at the ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting in New Orleans on February 17.

Dr. Peterson has made seminal contributions in fields ranging from oceanography to limnology, biogeochemistry, ecology, and hydrology. Among these are his use of new methods of analysis, his excellence as a synthesizer, and numerous scientific publications.

"I'm surprised and very excited," said Dr. Peterson, who began his career at the MBL nearly 40 years ago. "This honor puts a capstone on my career and gives me an opportunity to reflect and put things in context, which is something I never would have done unless I received this award."

"This is the premier ASLO award and it could have not been presented to a finer scientist," said ASLO President John Downing.

Throughout his career, Dr. Peterson has studied the cycles that influence ecosystem behavior. His work is relevant to the management and prediction of ecosystem properties in Arctic streams and rivers, nitrogen cycling in headwater streams and estuaries, and the impacts of climate change on the freshwater cycle of the Arctic.

Much of Dr. Peterson's research has been based at Alaska's Toolik Field Station, where, for the last 30 years, he and his colleagues have conducted a nutrient enrichment experiment in the Kuparuk River. The experiment has revealed a general principle of how streams respond to disturbance and is be
