Rana A. Fine selected as Fellow of the Oceanography Society

January 25, 2016

The Oceanography Society (TOS) congratulates Rana A. Fine, professor in the department of ocean sciences at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, for being selected as a Fellow of The Oceanography Society. The citation on Professor Fine's certificate recognizes her for significant contributions to the understanding of the ocean circulation and ventilation. Dr. Fine will be formally recognized on February 23, 2016 during a ceremony at the Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

An excerpt from the nominating letter for Dr. Fine, notes that "Rana's research contributions cover a wide range of scales from regional, to ocean basin, to inter-basin, to global scale; from low to high latitudes (both hemispheres); and from sea surface to sea floor. They deal with the full 3-D ocean circulation, quantifying the ventilation of the thermocline and deep ocean resulting from convection and subduction."

Professor Fine received a B.A. in Mathematics from New York University, an M.A. in Mathematics from the University of Miami and a Ph.D. in Marine Science from the UM Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Fine has received the highest honor attainable at the University of Miami, induction into the School's Iron Arrow Society and, a Provost's Award for Scholarly Activity.
The TOS Fellows program recognizes individuals who have attained eminence in oceanography through their outstanding contributions to the field of oceanography or its applications during a substantial period of years.
