DRI scientists honored by Discover Magazine

RENO, Nev. (AP) ” Research by two scientists at the Desert Research Institute about the impact of the industrial revolution on the environment has made the list of Discover Magazine’s Top 100 science stories of 2007.

The January 2008 edition of the publication cites the work of Joe McConnell, Ross Edwards and their colleagues, ranking their work at No. 19 on the list.

Their group developed a new method in ice core research that found eight times as much black carbon was deposited in Greenland’s ice from 1906 to 1910 than during the previous 100 years.

DRI President Stephen Wells in Reno says the scientists are on the cutting edge of research into global climate change. He says their recognition first by Science Magazine and now by Discover is well deserved.
