Fei-Fei Jin honored with the Sverdrup Gold Medal

The American Meteorological Society announced Fei-Fei Jin, Atmospheric Sciences professor in SOEST, will be the recipient of the 2019 Sverdrup Gold Medal for seminal and lasting contributions to understanding ocean–atmosphere interactions in the tropics and midlatitudes.

Jin’s research interests cover a broad range topics on the dynamics of large-scale atmosphere and ocean circulations,  as well as the climate variability. His primary research activity has been focused on understanding the dynamics of El Niño-Southern Oscillation, the dynamics for climate variability in the extratropical atmospheric circulation and dynamics of global warming.

Jin will receive his award at the 99th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona in January 2019.
