Hale Prize

Jun, 2014
Recipient: Thomas L Duvall (671)
Dr. Tom Duvall, an astrophysicist at Goddard has been selected to receive the 2014 Hale Prize for his outstanding contributions over an extended period of time in the field of solar astronomy. Duvall received this honor for his invention and application of innovative helioseismic methods and resulting groundbreaking discoveries within the solar interior, including internal sound-speed and rotation profiles, meridional circulation, wave perturbations in sunspots, and large scale convection properties. Duvall will be awarded the Hale Prize during the 2014 American Astronomical Society Meeting in Boston on June 1-5. Dr. Duvall is one of the pioneers of helioseismology and has been working in this area for more than twenty years. He is at least partly responsible for a number of discoveries, including the relation commonly known as Duvall's law, the initial measurements of rotation and sound speed throughout much of the solar interior, and the asymmetry of solar oscillation spectral lines. In recent years he helped invent the technique known as time-distance helioseismology, in which travel times are measured between different surface locations.

James Kerley Award

04.04.2014
Recipient: Geoffrey Bland (610.W)
Geoff’s award is for transferring an "Aerodynamically Stabilized Instrument Platform" (AeroPod). This device is designed to provide a stable, lightweight structure to fly remote sensing and in-situ instrumentation from a kite or tethered blimp/balloon. Aeropods have been deployed to provide in-situ volcanic plume measurement experiments at Turrialba Costa Rica. They are in regular use at the Wayne County Regional Education Services Agency, putting this technology into the hands of over 2000 students and teachers to date.

The James Kerley award is an annual award given by the Technology Transfer Program to GSFC civil servants who has been instrumental in transfer technologies. The Kerley Award is named after James Kerley, longtime Goddard employee, inventor, and a champion of technology transfer. IPPO awards are not limited to engineering and technology, but also include scientific and visualization codes and software.
