Susan L. Brantley

Susan L. Brantley, Distinguished Professor of Geosciences, Earth and Environmental Systems Institute, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, was elected to the National Academy of Sciences on May 1, 2012. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a private, non-profit society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific research and dedicated to advancing science and technology for the public good. Members are elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research, and it is arguably the highest honor that a U.S. scientist can receive. The nation's leaders in Congress and the White House often turn to the Academy for advice on scientific issues that often affect policy decisions.
