The Coastal and Marine Geology Podcast Series produced at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) office in St. Petersburg, Florida, received the 2011 Shoemaker Award in the Audio/Visual Product category. Awarded by the USGS Office of Communications and Publishing, the Shoemaker Awards recognize extraordinary examples of communicating complex scientific concepts and discoveries that capture the interest and imagination of the American public or increase understanding among USGS employees about our mission.

The video podcast series highlights science conducted at the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center. So far, seven videos have been produced, covering such topics as research on ocean acidification in the Arctic, measuring and forecasting the impacts of extreme storms on coastal environments, and the effects of African dust on coral-reef health. The series has benefited from the tremendous support and knowledge of scientists and staff at the center. Members of the podcast team include Matthew Cimitile (director, writer), Betsy Boynton (graphics, video editing), and Ann Tihansky (editor, producer). In making the announcement, Christina Nyquist (USGS Internal and Web Communications) commended the team for their submission, their dedication to communicating USGS science, and their contribution to communication excellence. Shoemaker Award winners were recognized at the annual USGS Awards Ceremony held October 25, 2011, at the USGS National Center in Reston.
