Prof. Klemas wins Fulbright to teach in Lithuania

Victor Klemas, Professor Emeritus of Marine Studies
9:28 a.m., Jan. 26, 2006--Victor Klemas, professor emeritus of marine studies, has received a Fulbright Scholar Program grant to teach ocean remote sensing at Klaipeda University in Lithuania this spring.

He is one of four UD faculty teaching abroad under the Fulbright Scholar Program this year.

Klemas also has been asked by Klaipeda to develop a remote-sensing program there and to serve as a chair for the second U.S./E.U. Baltic International Symposium, with 130 speakers from 18 European countries and the U.S., scheduled for May 23-25, in Klaipeda.

Klemas received a doctorate in optical physics from the University of Braunschweig in Germany and joined the UD faculty in 1979. During his tenure as professor of geography and electrical engineering at UD, he codirected UD’s Center for Remote Sensing for 30 years and directed UD’s Applied Ocean Science Program from 1981-98.
