CEE Professor Emeritus Wilfried Brutsaert wins the Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water
CEE Professor Emeritus Wilfried Brutsaert was awarded the prestigious 8th Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water in the Surface Water category. The awards ceremony occurred this past Monday, October 29, 2018 in New York City.
According to the PSIPW website,“Dr. Brutsaert’s work develops, demonstrates, and validates a new theory that can generate unprecedented estimates of evaporation from the natural landscape, with successful applications in numerous locations. Evaporation is one of the most complex of all hydrologic processes, and its accurate estimation is a continuous challenge for hydrologists. His method, using the nonlinear complementary principle, can be implemented with standard weather data without the need for less common and often complicated measurements. He has demonstrated that his method produces accurate results and can be applied over large-scale areas in various types of terrain."
Founded by Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz in 2002, this internationally acclaimed scientific prize has proven to be one of Saudi Arabia's key contributions to water-related issues on a global scale, issues which represent some of the world's most pressing humanitarian, economic and political concerns.
