International Meteorological Organization (IMO) Prize


  Prof. Matsuno

WMO honoured scientists with outstanding contributions in meteorology, climatology, hydrology and related sciences last June at the annual meeting of its Executive Council.

The IMO Prize, the most prestigious WMO award, originates from WMO’s predecessor, the International Meteorological Organization, founded in 1873.

The winner of the 55th IMO Prize, Professor Taroh Matsuno of Japan, is a research scientist in atmospheric dynamics and a climate research leader. He has significantly contributed to the progress of studies on climate change.
