A.G. Huntsman Medal for Dr Shubha Sathyendranath

 

The 2021 A.G. Huntsman Medal will be awarded to PML Merit Remote Sensing Scientist Dr Shubha Sathyendranath.

The A.G. Huntsman Foundation will be awarding the medal to Dr Sathyendranath  in recognition of her outstanding research achievements in the development of the use of optics and satellites in marine science as well as her dedication to developing international cooperation and capacity building in oceanography and ocean-colour remote sensing.

Dr Sathyendranath's research focuses on understanding the interaction of light with the ocean biota and the consequences for marine ecology, biogeochemistry and climate.

She applies marine optics and ocean colour remote sensing to topics such as development of algorithms for interpretation of satellite data, light penetration underwater, phytoplankton functional types, ecological provinces in the ocean, marine primary production, biological-physical feedbacks in the ocean, phytoplankton phenology,  carbon cycling, the use of ocean-colour data in climate studies and the dynamics of waterborne diseases.

Her work with the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean and other international initiatives, such as the International Ocean Colour Coordinating Group has advanced international collaborations in remote sensing.

The award ceremony and distinguished lecture will be a livestream webcast on November 26th 2021.
