IGS logoThe 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.).

Details of these awards, their eligibility and the requirements of the nomination packages are available here. Members of the Awards Committee are listed at https://www.igsoc.org/committees/awards/.

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 2021 awards is Friday 11 June 2021. (Nominations received after that date will be considered for 2022). Nomination packages should be sent by email, marked confidential, to the Chair of the Awards Committee (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and copied to the Secretary General (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

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!
