Opportunity: Medwin Prize in Acoustical Oceanography

A prize to honor continuing research accomplishments of young and mid-career scientists in Acoustical Oceanography is available via the Acoustical Society of America. Consideration will be given to individuals whose work demonstrates the candidate’s effective use of sound in the discovery and understanding of physical and biological parameters and processes in the sea. Research based solely on computer models will not be accepted as a substitute for ocean experiments or effective, small-scale laboratory models and experiments.

An individual may either apply personally or be nominated by a colleague or mentor. The recipient of the prize must under 46 years of age on 1 January 2016, and must have demonstrated his or her primary interest in Acoustical Oceanography through publications and oral presentations. The applicant or nominee need not be a member of the Acoustical Society of America. Award: The 2016 award consists of certificate and a $2,000 stipend. These will be presented at the Plenary Session of the spring ASA meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah (25 May 2016).
