Also propose a citation of no more than 30 words that highlights this recognition. NOTE: To avoid disappointment in the event of failure of selection, the nominee should not be informed that he/she is being considered.

Robert E. Horton Lecturer in Hydrology

The Robert E. Horton Lecturer in Hydrology is selected in recognition of eminence as a scientist for outstanding research on topics of interest to both hydrologists and meteorologists. The purpose of the lectureship is to encourage and foster an interchange of ideas between meteorologists and hydrologists. It is named for Robert E. Horton (1875-1945), whose career was distinguished by important assignments involving intricate hydrometeorological problems and by contributions to the sciences of meteorology and hydrology embracing all phases of the hydrologic cycle. The lecture, which may be either a general overview or a summary of recent work conducted in an area of particularly current interest, is presented at an AMS Annual Meeting or at an appropriate specialty conference. 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. Nominations are considered by the STAC Committee on Hydrology, which makes recommendations for final approval by AMS Council.

The Bernhard Haurwitz Memorial Lecturer is selected in recognition of significant contributions 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.

Special Procedures
The STAC Commissioner is responsible for forming the selection committee, which makes recommendations for final approval by AMS Council.
