The Revelle Medal is awarded to an individual "for outstanding contributions in atmospheric sciences, atmosphere-ocean coupling, atmosphere-land coupling, biogeochemical cycles, climate, or related aspects of the Earth system." Wofsy is being recognized for a distinguished career in the factors that regulate atmospheric composition, including experimental field studies of the carbon cycle using long-term eddy-covariance measurements of atmosphere-biosphere exchange in tropical, boreal, and midlatitude forests. Wofsy is currently supported by BER's Terrestrial Ecosystem Science program and is working on land-biosphere interactions (biogenic volatile organic compound and trace gas emissions) in Brazil. Wofsy was also an organizer for the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiment: Tropics workshop held in Bethesda, Md., in June 2012.
