The Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Advance of Applied Meteorology is granted to an individual for contributions to the direct application of meteorological or climatological knowledge to the fulfillment of industrial or agricultural needs or in research and development of scientific knowledge, which can meet such needs.
Names of nominees are submitted to the Board for Private Sector Meteorologists with input from the Applied Climatology STAC Committee. The Board submits a recommendation to the Commissioner on Professional Affairs, who reviews the recommendation and then makes a recommendation to the Council for final approval.
