Pat Glibert elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
Dr. Pat Glibert, a Professor at the Horn Point Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
This prestigious award is presented to scientists who have made distinguished contributions to the advancement of science. Dr. Glibert is internationally renowned in the field of marine ecological research, particularly regarding the harmful effects of algal blooms and the effects of nutrient pollution on coastal marine ecosystems, such as the Chesapeake Bay.
“Dr. Glibert’s outstanding work has helped to significantly improve our understanding of how nutrient loads and harmful algal blooms impact the Chesapeake Bay, as well as other ecosystems around the world,” said Horn Point Laboratory Director Dr. Michael Roman.
A researcher at the Horn Point Laboratory since 1986, Dr. Glibert has organized and led numerous research teams and coauthored more than 140 academic publications with more than 100 collaborators. While a great deal of her work has focused on Chesapeake Bay, she has also extensively studied coastal systems in Florida, California, as well as Australia, China, Kuwait, Oman and Sweden.
Horn Point Laboratory scientists are widely respected for their interdisciplinary programs in oceanography, water quality, restoration of sea grasses, marshes and shellfish and for expertise in ecosystem modeling. With ongoing research programs spanning from the estuarine waters of the Chesapeake Bay to the open waters of the world's oceans, Horn Point is a national leader in applying environmental research and discovery to solve society’s most pressing environmental problems.
