NOMINATIONS

PREAMBLE

The A.G. Huntsman Award is presented annually by the Royal Society of Canada to recognize excellence of research and outstanding contributions to marine sciences. Until 2013, the A.G. Huntsman Award had been presented in one of three categories on a rotating basis: Marine Geoscience, Physical/Chemical Oceanography, or Biological Oceanography and Fisheries Science. Recognizing there is often a considerable degree of overlap among these fields of study, more recent awards have no such categorical distinction and are simply awarded for excellence in marine sciences. The intent is not to exclude candidates that focus on single disciplines, but to acknowledge that some research defies such categorization, since it spans multiple disciplines. The overarching aim is to find and recognize truly exceptional marine scientists.

CRITERIA

The A.G. Huntsman Medal is awarded to those men and women, of any nationality, who have had and still have a significant influence on the course of marine scientific thought according to the following criteria:

1. for unequalled excellence in their respective fields;

2. for the influence of their work on the course of scientific thought in their respective fields; and

3. for their continuing and current activities at the forefront of their respective fields..
