UT observatory director honored


David Lambert, director of the University of Texas McDonald Observatory, has been awarded the Henry Norris Russell Lectureship, the highest honor conferred on an astronomer by the American Astronomical Society.

The society said Lambert is being recognized "for contributions in the field of stellar spectroscopy and abundances, which have profoundly influenced our knowledge of stellar evolution, nucleosynthesis, and their effects on the chemical evolution of the universe."

In four decades of research, Lambert has published 450 papers on topics including the composition of the sun and molecular emission by comets. Lambert came to UT-Austin as a faculty associate in 1969 and was appointed to the Isabel McCutcheon Harte Chair in 1987. He has been director of the McDonald Observatory since 2003.
