2016 Winner: Patrick L. McDermott, Christopher K. Wikle
A model-based approach for analog spatio-temporal dynamic forecasting
Volume 27, Issue 2. March 2016. Pages 70–82

"We selected this paper because it developed the most foundational techniques by introducing Bayesian modelling to analog forecasting and had the widest applicability and potential for impact. They conducted a comprehensive study to compare several Bayesian methods that fit within their new framework to several existing methods and variants thereof. Also, although their model was demonstrated for soil moisture data, it could be used for any number of analog forecasting problems."

2015 Winner: Jo M. Kaczmarska, Valerie S. Isham, and Paul Northrop
