Congratulations to David Archer, author of THE LONG THAW

David Archer has just been elected a fellow of the American Geophysical Union.

A press release from the University of Chicago states:

“The American Geophysical Union elects fellows as a special tribute to those who have made exceptional scientific contributions and who have attained acknowledged eminence in the earth and space sciences. This designation is conferred upon no more than 0.1 percent of all union members in any given year.

Archer specializes in chemical oceanography, global warming and the human impact on climate. He is the author of The Long Thaw: How humans are changing the next 100,000 years of Earth’s climate (Princeton University Press, 2008), which earned him the 2009 Walter P. Kistler Book Award.”

Please join Princeton University Press in congratulating him!
