Two UNH scientists have been recognized for the excellence of their research by the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), the premier international scientific society in acoustics devoted to the science and technology of sound. The ASA's Medwin Prize recognizes a person for the effective use of sound in the discovery and understanding of physical and biological parameters and processes in the sea.

Dr. Thomas Weber received the Medwin Prize at the 5th Joint Meeting: Acoustical Society of America and Acoustical Society of Japan in November 2016. Dr. Weber conducts research in the field of underwater acoustics and acoustical oceanography. He joined the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping in 2006 and is an assistant professor in UNH's Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Dr. Jennifer Miksis-Olds will be presented the Medwin Prize at the 173rd Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America and the 8th Forum Acusticum in June of 2017. Dr. Miksis-Olds'  research draws on aspects of acoustics, biology, oceanography, ecology, and engineering to create an interdisciplinary approach to the study of animals in their natural environment. She is the Associate Director of Research and a research professor in UNH's School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, and holds a research position in the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping.
