World Meteorological Organization (WMO): Inviting applications for ‘WCRP/GCOS International Data Prize’ to an early- to mid-career researcher for his or her outstanding contribution to the Earth system science community.

Funding brief: The development of high-quality, real-world data sets constitutes an on-going need of the climate research, observations, and modelling communities and their joint activities. Key areas in data collection for climate change research still remain under-sampled today, also affecting efforts in climate model calibration, evaluation, and reanalysis.

Recognizing this need for further advancing climate observations and their coordination, the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) are seeking nominations for the 2019 edition of the “WCRP/GCOS International Data Prize”. The prize is awarded annually to an early- to mid-career researcher for his or her outstanding contribution to the Earth system science community. The WCRP/GCOS Data Prize may honour achievements in data product generation, data management, data preservation, data monitoring, and other data relevant activities. In particularly successful cases, the establishment of standards or infrastructure for global data repositories may be considered for eligibility. The candidate’s activities shall result in concrete achievements that significantly facilitate community access to well-documented data otherwise not available and follow open-access paradigms to the extent possible.

Donor Name: World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

Funding limit: The prize encompasses a certificate signed by the Chairs of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee and the GCOS Steering Committee, as well as funding for the recipient to present the results of their research at a major conference or meeting of their choice. The WCRP/GCOS Data Prize was established in 2016 and is since awarded annually in conjunction with the “WCRP/WWRP International Prize for Model Development”, which was first awarded in 2014. Together, these two prizes for notable achievements in model and data development aim to honour, recognize, and foster research activities in their respective fields, as well as stress their mutual interdependence.
