The Council of the American Meteorological Society, at its recent meeting, voted to award Professor Robert Cess, The Jule G. Charney Award. The citation will read, 'for his outstanding contributions to our understanding of the science of atmospheric radiation and climate change and the role of clouds in climate models'. This work has been supported by the Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Biological and Environmental Research, Climate Change Research Division. The formal presentation will be made at the Annual Awards Banquet to be held on the evening of February 1, 2006, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. This will be a major event during the 86th Annual Meeting of the Society.
