IRAD Innovator of the Year

Oct, 2019
Recipient: William W Zhang (662)
Goddard’s Office of the Chief Technologist has named astrophysicist William Zhang as IRAD (Internal Research and Development) Innovator of the Year, an honor the office bestows annually on individuals who demonstrate the best in innovation.

Chosen because of his foresight, perseverance, and leadership, Zhang spent nearly two decades advancing the state-of-the-art in X-ray optics. He and his team ultimately succeeded in their years- long endeavor, creating a new type of optic, made of mono-crystalline silicon, an abundantly available material commonly used to manufacture computer chips.

International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) Early Career Award

Recipient: Denis Felikson (615)
Citation for the paper by the Selection Panel: "Denis Felikson and his co-authors show that the Péclet number, which is determined from high-resolution bedrock and surface topography data, can explain the competition between inland diffusion and advective resupply of ice in Greenland outlet glaciers with floating tongues. This provides a conceptually simple but powerful understanding of the disparate response of Greenland outlet glaciers to terminus perturbations. It also allows identification of the most vulnerable glaciers to climate forcing so that they can be targeted for further studies."

The Peter McGregor Prize of the Astronomical Society of Australia

Jul, 2019
Recipients: David Gordon (61A), The DiFX Collaboration
The Peter McGregor Prize is awarded by the Astronomical Society of Australia in recognition of exceptional achievement or innovation in astronomical instrumentation. The prize is normally awarded every three years. The award is made to an individual or team for the design, invention or improvement of astronomical instrumentation and associated software techniques that have enabled significant advances in any areas of astronomy, without restriction to wavelength or space/ground-based observations.

Citation: "The Distributed FX Correlator (DiFX) is a software package that contains tools necessary to turn an array of radio telescope signals into a functioning radio interferometer. The DiFX has contributed significantly to reducing the barrier to entry and play a major role in radio astronomy research internationally. The system has enabled a wide range of science, as testified by the very high number of references to the key technical papers. The open-access nature of the software has put a new tool in the hands of astronomers, with demonstrated positive results. Its scalability and adaptability has and continues to enable researchers to tailor its behaviour and pursue what would otherwise be difficult science goals."

The DiFX Collaboration is led by Adam Deller of Swinburne University (Australia), and includes: Adam Deller (leader), Walter Alef, James Anderson, Matthias Bark, Matthew Bailes, Walter Brisken, Roger Cappallo, Geoff Crew, Richard Dodson, David Gordon, Zheng Meyer-Zhao, John Morgan, Chris Phillips, Cormac Reynolds, Jon Romney, Helge Rottman, John Spitzak, Matteo Stagni, Steven Tingay, Jan Wagner, Mark Wainright, and Randall Wayth.

Arthur S. Flemming Award

Recipient: John D. Bolten (617)
"For achieving advances in applying satellite remote sensing, land surface modeling, and data assimilation for water resources management, agricultural forecasting, and flood monitoring and impact assessment. Recent examples of Dr. Bolten’s work include satellite data assimilation -based soil moisture maps that are used operationally by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service, and the first maps based on data from NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) to be available on Google Earth Engine. In addition to his own renowned research as a principal investigator, Dr. Bolten has guided dozens of projects in his role as Associate Program Manager, Water Resources, within NASA’s Applied Sciences Program. He demonstrates exceptional creativity in conceiving novel approaches to complex, applied scientific problems and is highly regarded in the community, as evidenced by frequent requests to give keynote lectures at prominent domestic and international meetings and his nomination to and service on the National Research Council’s Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space in 2017, which will guide NASA’s Earth Science mission priorities in the 2020s."
