Overview:

ASLO awards provide opportunities to recognize outstanding individual performance and to highlight accomplishments of the aquatic science research community.

Raymond L. Lindeman Award

This annual award recognizes an outstanding paper dealing with the aquatic sciences. Nominated papers must be written in English by an author who is no older than 35 years during the publication year. The paper must be published in a peer-reviewed journal two years before the award year (e.g., 2015 award will be presented for work published in 2013). The nominee must be first author if there is more than one author. This award recognizes the contribution of an individual scientist.

G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award

Emphasis in selection will be given to mid-career scientists for work accomplished during the preceding 5-10 years, in any aspect of limnology or oceanography. Preference will be given to candidates within 25 years of the receipt of their most advanced degree. Exceptional cases may be considered. This award is intended for individuals only.

A.C. Redfield Lifetime Achievement Award

The Alfred C. Redfield Lifetime Achievement Award was first presented in 1994 to recognize and honor major, long-term achievements in the fields of limnology and oceanography, including research, education and service to the community and society. Emphasis in selection is given to established aquatic scientists whose work is recognized for its importance and long-term influence. Candidates should have more than 25 years experience beyond the date of their most advanced degree. This award is open to pairs of individuals where joint work has been of a long-term, sustained collaborative effort.

Ruth Patrick Award

In 1998, the Board initiated the Ruth Patrick Award, to honor outstanding research by a scientist in the application of basic aquatic science principles to the identification, analysis and/or solution of important environmental problems. Emphasis on selection is given to aquatic scientists who have made either sustained contributions or a single, but critical contribution towards solving an environmental problem. While this award is intended for individuals, under exceptional circumstances the Awards Committee may consider a pair/team.

John Martin Award

The John Martin Award, established in 2005, recognizes a paper in aquatic sciences that is judged to have had a high impact on subsequent research in the field. The model for such a paper is Martin et al (1991), which laid out the case for iron limitation of phytoplankton productivity in the ocean. This award will be given to at most one paper per year. Unlike the Lindeman Award, which recognizes very recent papers (within 2 years) by young investigators, the Martin Award is for papers at least 10 years old. A nominated paper must be at least 10, but no more than 30 years old. It must be published in English and can be from any area of aquatic sciences. The spirit of the award is such that papers leading to fundamental shifts in research focus or interpretation of a large body of previous observations will be favored. In general, summarizing reviews and methods papers will not be favored.

Ramon Margalef Excellence in Education Award

In 2008, the Board initiated a new award for Excellence in Education to recognize excellence in teaching and mentoring in the fields of limnology and oceanography. This award is targeted toward aquatic scientists at any stage in their careers and will be presented to the candidate who best exemplifies the highest standards of excellence in education. The Excellence in Education award will be presented annually. While this award is intended for individuals, under exceptional circumstances the Awards Committee may consider a pair/team.

Yentsch-Schindler Early Career Award

In 2012, the Board initiated a new annual award in honor of early career scientists. The Yentsch-Schindler Early Career Award honors an individual aquatic scientist normally within 12 years of the completion of their terminal degree, for outstanding and balanced contributions to research, science training, and broader societal issues such as resource management, conservation, policy, and public education.
