The WMO Professor Mariopolous Award recognizes young scientists for exceptional contributions to meteorology and climatology. The award was created in 1996 by the Mariolopoulos-Kanaginis Foundation for the Environmental Sciences, which is in Athens, Greece.
The $2000 award is granted every two years. It recognizes an outstanding research paper in atmospheric sciences published or accepted in a refereed journal by a young scientist (age below 35 years by the date of publication).
The judges are scientists from the World Meteorological Organization, the European Commission (Directorate of Science, Research and Development) and the Mariopoulos-Kanaginis Foundation Board of Trustees. The Secretary-General of WMO is part of the selection committee.
A WMO trust fund was created in 1996 for the award, which is fully financed by the Mariopolous-Kanaginis Foundation.
