Lawrence Mysak, the Canada Steamship Lines Professor of Meteorology in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, was recently awarded an Alfred Wegener Medal and Honorary Membership of the European Geosciences Union. The first Canadian to receive the honour, Mysak is being recognized for his leadership in oceanography and his major contribution in ocean dynamics, sea-ice and climate research. This is one of Mysak's many honours, which also include membership in the Order of Canada, fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada (and past president of their Academy of Sciences), and the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal.
