Washington, DC – Associate Professor Deborah Nelson and her Reuter’s team investigation into the growing crisis of rising sea levels was honored with another prestigious award this week.

On Oct. 14, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine gave a 2015 Online Communication Award to Nelson, Data Journalist Ryan McNeill and reporter Duff Wilson for their “Water’s Edge” investigation.

The series won a third place IRE (Investigative Reporters & Editors) award last January and was the Sigma Delta Chi Awards/Society of Professional Journalists 2014 Non-Deadline Reporting winner.

Supported by the W.M. Keck Foundation since 2003 as part of the Keck Futures Initiative, these prestigious awards — each of which includes a $20,000 prize — recognize excellence in reporting and communicating science, engineering, and medicine to the general public.
