Meet Amy Burney – one of our 2020 BLAKE NIWA Ambassadors.
This week Amy joined NIWA New Zealand for the Climate and Atmosphere Ambassador programme where she will become engaged in the day-to-day activities of measurement programmes at the key NIWA measurement sites of Lauder and Wellington.
Amy will be actively involved in NIWA’s Climate and Atmospheric research programmes, learning how the measurements and samples are used and contribute to NIWA, New Zealand and International science programmes. Activities will include conducting field measurements of climate and atmospheric variables and assisting with processing and analysis of measurements.
Distinguished Professor, Dame Anne Salmond, has been awarded the 2020 #BLAKEMedal for her outstanding achievements and life-long, and clear devotion to the people, flora and fauna of “these islands” Aotearoa.
Led by her determined curiosity, she has become one of New Zealand’s most accomplished and celebrated anthropologists. And driven by her passion for the environment, she’s increasingly just as well-recognised for her work in environmental research and conservation.
