Award of the 2016 Edward Kidson Medal
Earlier this year nominations were opened for the award of the Edward Kidson medal. The medal is generally awarded every two years, and is named in honour of Edward Kidson, Director of the New Zealand Meteorological Service from 1927 to 1939. Kidson was instrumental in placing New Zealand meteorology on a sound scientific footing and is regarded as a key figure in the development of meteorology and climatology in this country.
