More information can be found at the “Request for 2016 Nominations” on the Employee Recognition Awards Procedures. There are two classes of awards: the Distinguished Achievement Award and the Outstanding Accomplishments Awards. Categories for the latter award include: Publication; Scientific and/or Technical Advancement; Administrative Achievement; Education and Outreach; Mentoring; and, Diversity.
A note on the publications awards, the focus of which is: "published results in the past five years of original research, review papers, or pedagogically oriented books that contribute to the atmospheric sciences". “Five years" is counted as five years prior to January 1 of the current year. I.e., the nominated activity must have been accomplished or published AFTER January 1, 2011 for 2016's nominations.
In order to submit nominations which will be favorably considered, please use the appropriate checklists:
Distinguished Achievement Awards
Outstanding Accomplishments Awards
These Checklists have been compiled by previous Awards Jury members in order to make the process more consistent and streamlined. This past year’s jury suggested that those who are providing supporting documents and/or letters of support for nominations should reference the appropriate Criteria Checklist. It may also be helpful for them to review the request for nominations noted above.
Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions.
