Climate Change

15th Edition

The BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award in the Climate Change category has gone in this fifteenth edition to paleoclimatologists James Zachos (University of California, Santa Cruz) and Ellen Thomas (Yale University and Wesleyan University) “for their seminal contributions to the identification of a major natural event in the fossil record that provides a compelling analog for anthropogenic climate change,” said the committee in its citation.
