Michael Connelly wins Suggestion Award

As a result of making a suggestion about converting data from a MARS I automatic weather station to metric standards, Michael Connelly, now with the Aerospace Meteorology Division, has been awarded $620 under the Public Service of Canada's Suggestion Award Program, and has received a congratulatory letter signed by deputy minister Blair Seaborn.

Mr. Connelly made his suggestion in 1978 while with the then Instruments Branch and, upon learning that AES did not have sufficient time to implement the project, carried out the conversion in his spare time. The value of the work was estimated to be around $7,000.

At a ceremony held at AES Downsview in January 1982, Dr. Ian Rutherford, director Meteorological Services Research Branch presented Mr. Connelly with a Suggestion Award Certificate.
