Prince Albert to Receive Revelle Prize
ASOC is pleased to be a community partner with this year's Roger Revelle Prize of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, which will honor Prince Albert of Monaco. The Prince is a highly visible supporter of climate change research who has worked hard to raise awareness of polar environmental issues. Last year, he hosted marine scientists in Monaco, who produced the Monaco Declaration calling for dramatic emissions reductions to prevent further acidification of the ocean, which threatens species critical to marine ecosystems. Prince Albert is truly a leader in this arena, and we wish other world leaders would take their cues from him. Learn more about the Revelle Prize here.
