Professor Jean-Pierre Gattuso (Laboratoire d’Océanographie, CNRS, Villefranche-sur-mer, France) received the 2020 Ruth Patrick Award of the ASLO (Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography) for “his leadership in, and commitment to, addressing ocean acidification”. In 2014, professor Gattuso was elected at the EurASc as one of the Blaise Pascal medallist selected by the Earth and Environmental Sciences division. He is one of the world leaders on ocean acidification which is due to the absorption by the ocean of the anthropogenic atmospheric CO2. He also is deeply involved in the International Panel for Climate Change (IPPC) reports and he did contribute to the China – Europe Frontier Forum on the future of marine sciences and technologies, held in Shanghai and on-line on 20-21 October 2020.
