Scientific Leadership Award

Recipient: Paul A. Newman (610)
Paul Newman received the Scientific Leadership Award during the Montreal Protocol 30th Anniversary Awards Honour Ozone Heroes. The awardees were nominated for their awards and selected by an international jury comprising eminent environmental leaders based on the recommendations of a technical screening committee made up of experienced ozone experts from around the world. The Ozone Secretariat only facilitated the process and was not involved in the evaluation and selection of the awardees. “I congratulate all the recipients of the awards for their extraordinary commitment and unwavering dedication to the Montreal Protocol. We also honour the contribution made by each individual, group, organization, and country towards making the Montreal Protocol a highly successful global environmental agreement that is protecting all life on Earth. We are all winners. We are all ozone heroes,” said Tina Birmpili, head of the Ozone Secretariat.

William T. Pecora Award

Recipient: Darrel L Williams (618)
The Pecora Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions by individuals or teams using remote sensing to understand the Earth, educate the next generation of scientists, inform decision makers or support natural or human-induced disaster response. The citation for Darrel Williams reads: For outstanding contributions toward understanding terrestrial ecosystems by means of Landsat remote sensing. Dr. Williams’ career has been dedicated to development and advancement of digital remote sensing and the Landsat program in particular, as envisioned by William Pecora and Secretary Udall a half-century ago. In stature and achievements, he lives in the true spirit of the USGS/NASA Pecora award and deserves the recognition that this award is intended to honor.
