Tolbert has earned it, UC-Boulder has announced, “for her contributions to understanding the chemistry and climate of planetary atmospheres, including past and present,” and “for her teaching and research efforts with undergraduates and graduate students, 15 of whom have won prestigious NASA and Environmental Protection Agency fellowships in recent years.” http://www.colorado.edu/news/releases/2007/129.html Congratulations Margaret!
