Nominations Needed
Distinguished Achievement Award and Young Investigator Award
Nominations are needed for the ENVR Distinguished Achievement Award and
the brand new ENVR Young Investigator Award. Both are given in recognition
of outstanding contributions to the development of methods, issues, concepts,
applications, and initiatives of environmental statistics. The Young Investigators
Award is meant to encourage and recognize younger members of the envi-
ronmental statistics community. We use a broad definition of environmental
statistics—from theoretical/foundational through applications and policy—
and seek to recognize the full range of activities of academic, government, and
industrial statisticians and scientists engaged in statistics and the environment.
Environmental statistics is interdisciplinary, and outstanding contributions may
occur outside of traditional niches.
