Trevor McDougall and his wife

Scientia Professor Trevor McDougall was presented with his Royal Society of Tasmania Medal at a ceremony in Hobart on Tuesday night.

Professor McDougall was announced as the recipient of the medal at the AGM of the Royal Society of Tasmania earlier in the year.

During the award ceremony, Prof McDougall presented the Royal Society of Tasmania Lecture, titled "What has the Ocean got to do with Climate?".

In a media release, The Royal Society of Tasmania declared that Prof McDougall's work on ocean physics "is fundamental to understanding ocean circulation and the way that heat is transferred between the ocean and the atmosphere in the climate system". In 1998 he was awarded the Society's MR Banks Medal, which honours outstanding academic achievement by a mid-career scientist under 45 years of age.

We congratulate Professor McDougall for his latest award in an ever-growing collection!
