At the Hamburg General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) appointed an Ad Hoc Award Committee consisting of I. Rodriguez-Iturbe (Venezuela), Chairman, T. O'Donnell (UK), and A. Ivan Johnson (USA). The charge to the committee was to develop recommendations to use $13,000 presented to IAHS by the Exeter Scientific Assembly Organizing Committee in memory of the late L. J. Tison. The IAHS Bureau approved an annual prize to recognize the scientific contributions of young hydrologists to IAHS, with $750 of investment income used for an annual Tison Award in accordance with the following rules: The IAHS Tison Award aims to promote excellence in research by young hydrologists. The award will be announced annually and will be presented in a public ceremony during either an IUGG/IAHS General Assembly or an IAHS Scientific Assembly.
