Raymond Schmitt

An Exceptional Fellow

WHOI Senior Scientist Raymond Schmitt has been elected a 2012 fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), one of 61 new fellows who are being recognized by AGU for "exceptional scientific contributions and attained acknowledged eminence in the fields of Earth and space sciences." Schmitt joined the WHOI staff in 1978, and his research focuses on the ocean's role in climate, the global water cycle and instrumentation for a global ocean observing system. He currently is working on a collaborative study with NASA that will measure the ocean's saltiness from hundreds of miles above Earth using the Aquarius satellite.
