CLaSP alumnus named Fellow of the American Meteorological Society

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) named Climate and Space alumnus Paul Gross an AMS Fellow at its annual meeting in Austin, Texas this year. He now becomes one of only four meteorologist in the world ever to be named AMS Fellow, AMS Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, and AMS Certified Consulting Meteorologist

A proud 1983 graduate of the department, Paul has worked as a meteorologist at WDIV-TV in Detroit for thirty-five years, and has been awarded eight Emmys by the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences.

The Michigan Association of Broadcasters has also honored Paul with a first place award for his 2015 live climate change webcast on WDIV’s website, ClickOnDetroit.com

The AMS recognizes Paul as one of the nation’s leaders in communicating the scientific truth about global warming and, in addition to his frequent reporting, Paul also gives many lectures about climate change to groups in the Metro Detroit area.

Congratulations, Paul!
