The Advocate reports the award was presented to Eugene Turner during the organization's International Wetland Conference held in Orlando, Fla., in June.
Turner is a distinguished research master and holds the Shell Endowed Chair in Oceanography and Wetland Studies at LSU.
His work has focused on low oxygen levels in Louisiana coastal areas, a phenomenon known as the "dead zone."
