LAT's 'Altered Oceans' wins another prestigious award

The 2007 AAAs Science Journalism Awards honor excellence in science reporting for print, radio, television and online categories. Kenneth Weiss and Usha Lee McFarling's ambitious series that examined the profound disturbances that have been occurring in the ecology of the world’s oceans also won a 2007 Pulitzer Prize.

“The Altered Oceans series was an unusual undertaking for a newspaper,” Weiss said. “There was no single dramatic event like a hurricane or tsunami. No mass human deaths. Instead, we looked at the slow creep of environmental decay — the kind of changes that most people never notice.”
