Part One - CMOS Prizes and Awards


CMOS Fellow Announced / Nouveau Membre émérite

M.K. Peter Yau, McGill University,

  for his innovative contributions to the modelling of tropical storms, his parameterization of cloud processes and his major role in the training of the future generation of atmospheric scientists

pour sa contribution novatrice à la modélisation des tempêtes tropicales, sa paramétrisation des processus relatifs aux nuages et son apport majeur à la formation des générations futures de spécialistes en sciences de l'atmosphère


President's Prize / Prix du président

Susan E. Allen, University of British Columbia

for her 2010 paper (co-authored with B. M. Hickey) published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Oceans entitled Dynamics of advection-driven upwelling over a submarine canyon, which is meritorious because it provides long-needed, useful and robust-to-environmental-change estimates of the flux of water across the shelf-break at canyons

en récompense à son article de 2010 (corédigé avec B. M. Hickey) publié dans le Journal of Geophysical Research, Oceans et intitulé Dynamics of advection-driven upwelling over a submarine canyon (dynamique de la remontée des eaux dictée par l'advection au-dessus d'un canyon sous-marin), car elle y propose une estimation utile, peu sensible aux changements environnementaux et longuement attendue des courants traversant le rebord du plateau continental qui longe des canyons



J.P. Tully Medal in Oceanography
Médaille de J.P. Tully en océanographie

  MSC Patterson Medal (2015) / SMC La medaille Patterson (2015)

Tom McElroy for early research into the measurements of nitrogen dioxide in the stratosphere evolved into cross-disciplinary contributions that have expanded both the fundamental understanding of atmospheric chemistry and have provided practical applications in global environment and public health monitoring and meteorology. 

Following 36 years as a Research Scientist for Environment Canada, Dr. McElroy retired from the public service in 2011 to become Professor and Industrial Research Chair in Atmospheric Remote Sounding at York University.  In his current position, Dr. McElroy leads important research through his leadership in the design, building and deploying of new and innovative remote-sounding instruments that will address significant atmospheric themes involving climate change processes, air-quality issues and the recovery of the ozone layer. He also helps to shape the future of meteorology through dedicated mentoring and supervision of graduate students and researchers.
