The Oceanographic Society of Japan (JOS) is soliciting nominations for the Yoshida Award, which is a new award established in 2022 to commemorate the late Professor Kozo Yoshida for his pioneering research on ocean upwelling.
The Yoshida Award is granted to a researcher in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the advancement in understanding of the phenomena associated with ocean upwelling, including physical, chemical, and biological phenomena and their effects on climate and ecosystems. JOS membership is not required for nominees, while nominators must be members of JOS. Nomination by a group including non-JOS member is acceptable, but the lead nominator must be a member of JOS.
