Dr. J. Marshall Shepherd, a renowned atmospheric scientist and leading international weather-climate expert, and ELI's 2023 Environmental Achievement Award Winner

Dr. J. Marshall Shepherd

This year's Award Dinner featured incredible speeches by ELI President Jordan Diamond, our honoree Dr. Shepherd, Dr. Spinrad, NOAA Administrator and ELI Board Chair Rob Kirsch. If you had to miss out this year or want to relive the speeches, the full recording of the Award Dinner is now available below for your viewing enjoyment.

We again want to offer congratulations to Dr. Shepherd and thank each and every one of our sponsors for making our yearly celebration together possible. We inadvertently missed a few sponsors in the video, so want to be sure that BakerHostetler, Bergeson & Campbell P.C., Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Vinson & Elkins know how much we appreciate their support! The video has been updated to include them. Thank you all!
