Prof. Eric F. Wood Elected to the National Academy of Engineering
Professor Eric F. Wood, the Susan Dod Brown Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering as announced on Thursday, February 5, 2015 by NAE President C.D. (Dan) Mote Jr.
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."
Professor Wood was elected for his principal engineering accomplishment in the development of land surface models and the use of remote sensing for hydrologic modeling and prediction.
Congratulations to Eric on this deserving honor!
