The International Glaciological Society is currently seeking nominations for 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.).
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.
All nominations will be acknowledged, and the result of any successful 2021 awards will be announced in late July/early August.
We look forward to receiving nominations of your peers from the community!
