6313 Tsurutani           Discovered 1990 Sept. 14 by H. Debehogne at the European Southern Observatory.
Bruce Tsurutani (b. 1941) has made essential contributions to original research and technical leadership in space science activities for many NASA, NASA-ESA and Japanese space missions. His research activities include instabilities and turbulence in space plasmas, space weather and astrophysical plasmas.
