Paul Linden, director of UCSD's Environment and Sustainability Initiative and chair of the Jacobs School's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, was one of 44 scientists elected in 2007 as fellows to the United Kingdom 's National Academy of Science. Linden was recognized for his worldwide influence in the field of experimental fluid dynamics.

Linden's laboratory experiments and theoretical analyses of fluid flows are relevant to oceanography, meteorology, and environmental and industrial problems. He has played a crucial role in stimulating the development of innovative imaging and measuring techniques which have had an important influence on experimental fluid dynamics. The Royal Society's approximately 1,400 fellows and foreign members include more than 60 Nobel laureates, and have included such scientific pioneers such as Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Ernest Rutherford, and Albert Einstein.
