The 2016 Riehl Award for an outstanding paper based on MS research went to Jack Kodros. Jack, who is advised by Jeff Pierce, won for his recent Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics paper entitled Uncertainties in global aerosols and climate effects due to biofuel emissions. Jack was unable to attend today's ceremony (a long story involving bureaucracy and the Indian government). We will look for an opportunity for Jack to present his paper in the near future.

The 2016 Alumni Award for an outstanding paper based on PhD research went to Leah Grant. Leah is advised by Sue van den Heever. She was recognized for her recent JGR paper entitled Cold Pool Dissipation. Leah gave a great presentation which stimulated a great deal of discussion. Leah is now the 3rd ATS student to be selected for both the Riehl and Alumni student paper awards, following Angela Rowe and Adele Igel.

Congratulations to all of our award recipients! Competition in the selection process was exceptionally keen as we received many very strong nominations for each of these awards.
