This prize is generously supported by the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS).
AMOS is an independent society representing the atmospheric and oceanographic sciences in Australia. It currently has over 500 members drawn from the Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO, the university sector, other State and Federal agencies, as well as the private sector. Most members of AMOS are actively employed in one of the scientific fields covered by the Society, but the membership also includes university students, retired scientists, school teachers and others from the general community with an interest in weather and climate.
Awarded for excellence in undergraduate study towards a degree with a substantial component of Atmospheric Science, Climatology or Oceanography. Awarded for academic results obtained during the second year, third year, honours or Masters by coursework.
Those students completing a degree by research (e.g. PhD or Masters by research) will not be eligible as they are instead eligible for the AMOS Uwe Radok Award.
$250 and one year membership with AMOS (valued at $50)
