Call for Nominations for the PAUL J. CRUTZEN AWARD – FOR EARLY CAREER SCIENTISTS – 2022

International Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution (iCACGP)

The international Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution (iCACGP) is one of the Commissions in IAMAS (International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences) of the IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics) under the non-governmental ISC (International Science Council) family. iCACGP facilitates atmospheric chemistry research that contributes to solving the societal issues of air quality, human/ecosystem health, food production and water quality. This is achieved through an enhanced understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that control atmospheric composition, surface fluxes and the development of improved predictive capabilities.

Purpose of the prize

The “Paul J. Crutzen Award for Early Career Scientists of the International Commissions on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution” is granted for an outstanding research contribution in atmospheric sciences by an early career scientist. The purpose of the award is to promote scientific innovation in atmospheric sciences for the protection of the environment.

The person nominated for the Award should be the first author of at least one cited paper with significant innovation and impact. An early career scientist is defined for this award as a researcher within 7 years of completing a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. If parental leave falls into this period, up to one year may be added per child where appropriate. The nominee should meet the above criteria by the first of June of the year when the award is competed.
