The Edward Stone Award for Outstanding Research Publication
The Edward Stone Award for Outstanding Research Publication recognizes and encourages publication of significant research results in science and in technology by JPL employees throughout their professional careers. This distinguished award consists of a certificate of recognition and a monetary award of $5000. Generally, two (2) awards are presented each year.
For the discovery of a new link between sea ice conditions and the melting rate of ice shelves that controls the discharge of Antarctic glaciers into the ocean
For significant innovation in Ice Sheet modeling and estimation of improvements to model forcings consistent with altimetry and other data
For establishing the relative importance of terrestrial CO2 uptake to increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 from human emissions
For development of techniques to precisely probe planetary interiors and for significant advances to the state of knowledge of the Moon's interior
The Lew Allen Award for Excellence
The Lew Allen Award for Excellence recognizes and encourages significant individual accomplishments or leadership in scientific research or technological innovation by JPL employees during the early years of their professional careers. The award consists of a wall plaque and a monetary award of $25,000 from the JPL Research and Technology Development Fund (R&TD) to be used at JPL to enhance the professional efforts of the awardee.
For his exceptional discoveries and leadership in the development of new trajectory design techniques, particularly the lunar low-energy trajectory design.
For expanding the scope of JPL oceanography research in marine biophysical interaction, ecosystem dynamics, and ocean salinity science
For pioneering studies of the properties of cryogenic hydrocarbon liquids and critical contributions to the development of the PIXL instrument
For development of new climbing robots and robotic grippers with widespread application to space and terrestrial exploration
The work and accomplishments of many JPL researchers has been recognized by many institutions. Awards, fellowships, and other recognitions have been bestowed on researchers across multiple fields of research.
