An important SCAR activity is recognition of excellence in Antarctic and Southern Ocean science and outstanding service to the international Antarctic community, both of which are critical to advancing SCAR‘s vision and mission. Peer-recognition rewards and highlights those who exemplify the best of the Antarctic community and serve as models for the next generation of scientists and researchers. SCAR created the Medals to provide this recognition: the Medal for Excellence in Antarctic Research and the Medal for International Scientific Coordination.
The deadline for nominations for the 2014 medals is 15th March 2014.
Information on the nomination and selection process, including full details on how to make a nomination, are available on the Medals page of the SCAR website: http://www.scar.org/awards/medals.html
