Nominations for the 2020 International Glaciological Society Awards close in just over a month. Details of these awards, their eligibility and the requirements of the nomination packages are available at here. Members of the Awards Committee are listed here.
Please note that the award system was revamped in 2018 and some awards have changed in scope and content. It is the intention of IGS to give these awards on roughly an annual basis. Nominations can be made at any time, but the close off date for the 2020 awards is Friday 17 July 2020.
The IGS seeks nominations for its three Honorary Awards:
* The Seligman Crystal (awarded to a single person or a collaborative group/team that has made exceptional scientific contributions to glaciology, defined as any snow and/or ice studies.)
* The Richardson Medal (awarded to a single person or a collaborative group/team that has provided outstanding service to the International Glaciological Society and/or to the field of glaciology), and
* Honorary Membership (recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of glaciology at a national or regional level.).
All nominations will be acknowledged, and the result of any successful 2020 awards will be announced in late August/early September.
We look forward to receiving nominations of your peers from the community.
