A round of applause, please, for HAS colleague and former faculty member, Francina Dominguez, on being selected for the 2018 AMS Henry G. Houghton Award in recognition of her pioneering contributions to terrestrial meteorology and improving our understanding of land-atmosphere interactions. Dominguez was among the founding faculty members of our department's Hydrometeorology program and served as its co-director. In 2015, she returned to her alma mater, the University of Illinois, where she has initiated a similar research group focused on the study of hydrometeorology and land-atmosphere interactions. Dominguez will receive her award in a formal ceremony at the AMS annual meeting in Austin, Texas, in January 2018. Congratulations, Francina!
