UCSD marine ecologist Ed Parnell has been honored with the 2010 Roger Revelle Award from the San Diego Oceans Foundation.

The award, named after former Scripps director, climate science pioneer and UCSD founder Roger Revelle, recognizes a San Diegan who “has made a significant contribution to man’s ability to coexist with the marine environment.”

Parnell’s research interests include human impacts on the coastal zone, as well as the ecology of kelp forests and the coastal shelf environment. His insights and expertise have become invaluable as California formalizes plans to increase marine protected areas. The designs for the south La Jolla and North County marine protected areas were based on his research.
