Atmospheric Science Librarians International (ASLI) has selected “Hawai‘i’s Mauna Loa Observatory: Fifty Years of Monitoring the Atmosphere” by Forrest M. Mims III for the ASLI’s Choice 2012 Award in the History category. The book was praised for its “engaging perspective on the scientists, discoveries, and ground-breaking atmospheric measurements done at Mauna Loa Observatory.”

ASLI’s Choice is an award for the best book of 2012 in the fields of meteorology / climatology / atmospheric sciences.

Mims attended the official presentation during the American Meteorological Society annual meeting in Austin, Texas. Mims recently wrote two articles for the San Antonio Express-News about Dr. Robert Simpson, the founder of the Mauna Loa Observatory, who recently celebrated his 100th birthday. “Hawai‘i’s Mauna Loa Observatory: Fifty Years of Monitoring the Atmosphere” was published by the University of Hawai‘i Press.
