CRSS Gold Medal Award / Médaille d'or de la SCT
The CRSS Gold Medal Award was introduced in 1986 to recognize either a significant new advance in remote sensing research, development, technology or applications, or a significant long-term contribution to the field of remote sensing in Canada. The Gold Medal is the highest award granted by the Canadian Remote Sensing Society for excellence in remote sensing.
The candidate must be nominated in writing by two members in good standing of CRSS who have not worked for or with the nominee in a substantive manner during the previous three years. The nomination should clearly describe the candidate’s contributions. Additional letters of support and other supporting documentation would help to strengthen the nomination (e.g. curriculum vitae/ resumé). Nominees who have received the CRSS Bronze Medal or CRSS Silver Medal in the last 5 years are not eligible. Nominations must be received by the CRSS Vice-Chair by the due date indicated above, and should remain confidential from the nominee and others. The CRSS Executive will review the nominations that are brought forward by the Vice-Chair.
