The Banner I. Miller Award
The Banner Miller Award recognizes an outstanding contribution to
the science of hurricane and tropical weather forecasting published
in a journal with international circulation during the 48 months
prior to the deadline for nominations. The Award is to be first
presented at the American Meteorological Society's Hurricanes and
Tropical Meteorology Conference.
