Regulations for the Buchan Prize
In order to commemorate the amalgamation of the Scottish Meteorological Society with the Royal Meteorological Society and in memory of Alexander Buchan, Scotland’s foremost meteorologist, a prize termed the “Buchan Prize”, shall be awarded annually. The Prize shall be awarded to the author of the paper or papers contributed to the Society journals in the previous five years, which shall be adjudged by the Council to contain the most important original contribution or contributions to meteorology. Papers published in other journals within the time prescribed may be considered, but only in support of authors who have papers of merit published also in the Society journals within the time prescribed. The prize shall be confined to members of the Society. In the case of joint authorship the prize may, at the discretion of the Council, be divided and the certificate duplicated, even if one author is not a member of the Society. No person shall be eligible for the prize a second time.
