Steve Eittreim (Menlo Park, CA) received this year's Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Award for Science/Research. This is one of several awards presented yearly by the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) to people and organizations that have contributed greatly to the implementation of programs geared toward meeting the goals of the sanctuary. Last year, the USGS won the sanctuary's award in the Organization category.

The awards were presented at the Ninth Annual Sanctuary Awards ceremony held at California State University, Monterey Bay, on March 9, 2002. The program notes, quoted here, explain why Steve was honored with this year's Science/Research award:

"Dr. Steve Eittreim has recently completed a multiyear USGS study of the geology and geologic processes of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Steve provided leadership and coordination of a large group of geologists, oceanographers, and sedimentologists investigating a spectrum of research topics ranging from regional current structure to sea-floor mapping to coastal retreat. He also participated in numerous cruises and individual studies of his own. His research has contributed markedly to maps of the sanctuary and a new understanding of sediment distribution and processes on the sea floor. A hallmark of the effort that he led is the publication of a CD with maps and data [Wong, F.L., and Eittreim, S.L., Continental Shelf GIS for the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 01-179, version 1.0] and a forthcoming special issue of the journal Marine Geology which will detail the research investigations of USGS scientists and collaborators over the past 5 years. Both of these products will be useful for years to come to all researchers in the Monterey Bay community."
