2020 Ruth Patrick Award: Jean-Pierre Gattuso

The Ruth Patrick Award honors scientists who have applied the aquatic sciences toward solving critical environmental problems. Jean‐Pierre Gattuso (Sorbonne University) is the 2020 recipient of the Ruth Patrick Award in recognition for his leadership in, and commitment to, addressing ocean acidification. This acidification is due to increasing carbon dioxide in marine waters driven by fossil fuel emissions and represents a major threat to marine biodiversity. Dr. Gattuso’s research is providing the scientific basis and best practices to advance experimental research and solutions to solve this important challenge.
