The International Hydrology Prize
The International Prize in Hydrology shall be awarded to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to hydrology such as confers on the candidate universal recognition of his or her international stature; The contribution should have an identifiable international dimension extending beyond both the country of normal work and the specific field of interest of the candidate; The contribution may have been made through scientific work, as evidenced by the publication in international journals of scientific literature of a high standard, and/or through practical work, as evidenced by reports of the projects concerned. Preference should be given to candidates who have contributed through both scientific and practical work. The Prize may be awarded to hydrologists of long international standing or to those who, while having gained such standing only recently, exhibit the qualities of international leadership in the science and practice of hydrology. An active involvement in the work of IAHS and other international organizations in the field of hydrology should be counted as an advantage. For more details see http://iahs.info/awards.htm.
The IAHS Tison Award was established in 1982 and aims to promote excellence in research by young hydrologists. The Award will be granted for an outstanding paper published by IAHS by a young scientist ( Candidates for the Award must be under 41 years of age at the time their paper was published) in a period of two years previous to the deadline for nominations. For more details see http://iahs.info/awards.htm

Professor Lawrence Mysak, President of IAPSO, is pleased to announce that this year’s Prince Albert I Medal has been awarded to Dr. Trevor McDougall in recognition of his “outstanding work on (1) important and fundamental problems of ocean fluid dynamics over the full range of ocean scales, and (2) the thermodynamic properties of seawater”.
The Medal will be presented to Dr. Trevor McDougall in Melbourne at the IUGG11 General Assembly during a ceremony to take place on Friday, July 1, at 10:30, after which Dr. McDougall will give the Albert I Memorial Lecture. The title of his talk is “Detecting signatures of ocean mixing: – the forensic science aspect of ocean mixing”. All IUGG11 delegates are welcome to attend.
The Eugene LaFond Medal
The Eugene LaFond Medal shall be awarded to an ocean scientist from a developing country making a presentation (poster or oral) in a IAPSO-sponsored or co-sponsored symposium at the IUGG11 General Assembly.
