The Bernhard Haurwitz Memorial Lecturer is selected in recognition of significant contributions by a mid-career scientist to the understanding of atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics, the circulation of the middle atmosphere, or the dynamics of climate. The lecture is presented at the AMS Annual Meeting or an appropriate specialty meeting. The lecture may be recorded for broader dissemination and, if desired by the Lecturer, a written version of the lecture will be posted as part of BAMS Online.
The STAC Commissioner is responsible for forming the selection committee, which makes recommendations for final approval by AMS Council. The selection committee, composed of a five-person panel including the Commissioner as chair, two members from the Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics Committee, one member from the Middle Atmosphere Committee, and one member from the Committee on Climate Variability and Change.
Mid-career is nominally taken to include scientists who are within 10 to 20 years beyond earning their highest graduate degree or within 15 to 25 years beyond earning their baccalaureate. Consideration will also be given, however, to those who are still in the middle stage of their careers but have seen these interrupted for up to 5–10 years by family leaves, military service, and the like.
