LARAMIE, Wyo. — University of Wyoming professor Steve Holbrook has been recognized by the Oceanography Society for distinguished research.

Holbrook is the 2013 recipient of the society's Walter Munk Award for Distinguished Research in Oceanography Related to Sound and the Sea.

Holbrook is UW Department of Geology and Geophysics faculty member.

The Oceanography Society has presented the award every two years since 1993 to recognize significant original contributions and outstanding service in ocean science research.

A media release from the Oceanography Society calls Holbrook "the father of the new field of 'seismic oceanography.'"

Seismic oceanography is considered a new type of research in the world of seismology.
