ABOUT

NZ Hydrological society Awards acknowledge the expertise and achievement of our members in the area of hydrology, both in terms of hydrological science and operational hydrology.

Award for Achievement in Operational Hydrology

PURPOSE

The Award for Achievement in Operational Hydrology is to:

  • promote the principal objective of the Society to further the development of the science of hydrology and its application to the under-standing and management of New Zealand's water resources

THE AWARD

The Award will be a suitably inscribed medal to be presented at the Society's Annual Symposium.

CONDITIONS

The Award will recognise significant contributions to operational hydrology (the acquisition, transmission, processing, archiving and application of data related to the quantity and quality of water in all parts of the hydrological cycle) in New Zealand, as demonstrated by:

  • introduction or development of technology that significantly has enhanced operational hydrology, and/or
  • a person's impact on the contribution of operational hydrology to the science of hydrology and its application to the understanding and management of New Zealand's water resources
  • the recipient will normally be resident in New Zealand.

Nominations will be judged by a selection panel nominated by the Society's Executive. The panel may obtain statements from the nominee's referees, and may seek additional comments from appropriately qualified persons.
