  • Phenologist Wins 2013 AGU Sulzman Award
    Wednesday, December 4, 2013

    The Biogeosciences Section of AGU will present the first Sulzman Award for Excellence in Education and Mentoring to Dr. Heidi Steltzer, of Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO. Dr. Steltzer is a phenology champion in both the education and research realms.  By incorporating juniper phenology observing into her undergraduate class she made a big contribution to the Juniper Pollen Project's efforts to predict pollen dispersal. She also utilizes the resources available through Nature's Notebook to develop inquiry-based labs on species students select for their projects, for example, oaks, rabbitbrush, aspen and more.  In her research she has developed the Mantis, a near-surface instrument array for monitoring phenology through surface greenness and microclimate. Our appreciation and congratulations to Heidi for all of her efforts in the field of phenology.
