The International Association of Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) is soliciting nominations for the 2018 IAGLR Lifetime Achievement Award.
The award honors a person who has made a notable impact on Great Lakes research with an outstanding body of work over many years, recognizing important and continued contributions to the field over a period of 20 years or more. Nominees will be evaluated on the basis of contribution (sustained and substantial theoretical, experimental, or field research), originality (outstanding body of original work, and reporting on unique datasets), and impact (long-term influence on research in a specific subdiscipline) to the science of Great Lakes research.
Individuals may be nominated by regular members of IAGLR in the form of a nomination letter, a copy of the nominee’s resume, and three letters of support. In the letter, the nominator should clearly indicate how the nominee has made a notable impact on Great lakes research in the key areas of contribution, originality, and impact (approximately 2 pages).
