Regulations for the Gordon Manley Weather Prize
The Gordon Manley Weather Prize shall be awarded annually for an outstanding contribution to Weather in the preceding five years. The award commemorates Professor Gordon Manley (1902-1980) who was President of the Society in 1945-47 when Weather was launched in 1946, and who, as an author, was renowned for the many articles he wrote aimed at increasing the public understanding of the weather. The Prize shall be awarded annually on the basis of an outstanding contribution to Weather judged in terms of the contribution of a single outstanding paper or several excellent papers, that have helped to further the public understanding of meteorology and oceanography, submitted within the five consecutive calendar years preceding the year of the award, or for outstanding service to Weather during the preceding five years. The Prize shall be awarded to one individual normally but when appropriate may be awarded to co-authors. The Prize shall not be confined to Fellows of the Society. No person shall be eligible for the award a second time. The Prize shall only be awarded if a nomination of sufficiently high standard is forthcoming. In exceptional circumstances the qualifying period of five years may be extended (e.g. in recognition of an individual's outstanding contribution to Weather during their career).
