The Lifetime Achievement Award was first presented in 1994 to honor major long-term achievements in the fields of limnology and oceanography, including research, education and service to the community and society. In 2004, the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography Board renamed the award in honor of Alfred C. Redfield.


Year[A] Recipient Rationale

1997 Alan R. Longhurst "In recognition of sustained excellence in the study of marine food webs and biogeography, and of outstanding leadership in the development of international collaboration and in the administration of world-renowned oceanographic programs"
1998 Karl Banse "For his prolific, diverse, and seminal papers on key oceanographic issues, rigorous application of the scientific method, high intellectual standards, and excellence in teaching"
1999 Charles S. Yentsch "For sustained and innovative contributions in the fields of phytoplankton pigments and productivity, optical properties and remote sensing, and for establishing and sustaining oceanographic initiatives and programs"
2000 Ramon Margalef "For his research and teaching on the subjects of plankton succession and the role of physical processes in structuring plankton communities that have guided the oceanography field for four decades"
2001 Jack Vallentyne "For his exemplary research contributions in paleolimnology, biogeochemistry and eutrophication; outstanding administrative accomplishments in forming and fostering the Experimental Lakes Area; and passionate efforts in educating children in environmental, ecological and limnological issues"
2002 John J. Magnuson "For his extensive and effective service to the limnological and oceanographic communities, including leadership in national and international programs that have strengthened both science and policy, and for his seminal approaches to the community ecology of lakes and lake districts"
2003 John J. Gilbert "For developing and sustaining the field of rotifer ecology and biology; for successful mentorship for more than a quarter century; and for vital service contributions to the national and international communities of limnologists and oceanographers"
2004 Charles R. Goldman "For his enduring efforts to understand and protect Lake Tahoe, his inspiring mentorship of numerous students who themselves have made lasting scientific contributions, and for his tireless advocacy for limnological research, training and stewardship worldwide"
2005 Andre Morel "For leading our modern understanding of ocean color, particularly in Case 1 waters, where the optical properties are dominated by biology; and for fundamental work in the interpretation of satellite observations of ocean color"
2006 Tom Fenchel "For opening our eyes to the fascinating world of low Reynolds numbers and rapid diffusion and to the amazing adaptations of chemotactic and locomotive behaviour developed by protozoa and bacteria to life in a heterogenerous world"
2007 Jörg Imberger "For major contributions in physical limnology and particularly for fundamental insights into lake stratification and mixing dynamics through observational, theoretical and modeling studies"
2008 John Hobbie "For contributions in the field of aquatic microbial ecology and involvement with the development of important institutions and research programs"
2009 Peter J. LeB. Williams "For his outstanding contributions to our understanding of oceanic productivity, carbon cycling and metabolic balance and for his role in shaping current views on the importance of microbial processes in the oceans"
2010 James F. Kitchell "For field-changing contributions in the areas of fish ecology and fisheries, trophic dynamics, and understanding the role of fish in aquatic ecosystems."
2011 Frederick Grassle "For fundamental discoveries in deep sea ecology, visionary leadership of marine sciences, selfless community service, and groundbreaking technical innovations that will shape oceanography for decades to come."
2012 Winfried Lampert and Maciej Gliwicz "For their outstanding individual and collaborative research, which has laid the foundations for our current understanding of phytoplankton-zooplankton interactions, trophic ecology of zooplankton, and evolutionary relationships in freshwater ecosystems."
2013 Bruce J. Peterson "For innovative and transformative studies of carbon, nutrient and water cycles at process, ecosystem and global scales."
2014 Gene E. Likens "For his extraordinary long-term contributions to the fields of limnology and oceanography–including research, education, and service within and beyond the aquatic sciences community."
2015 David Schindler "For his unfaltering record of revolutionary limnological research that addressed the most important aquatic environmental issues of our time."
2016 Evelyn Sherr and Barry Sherr "For their lifetime research on food-web interactions, protists, and the factors controlling the activity, growth, and survival of aquatic microorganisms."
