2006 Prizewinners /Lauréats des prix, 2006
To: Howard Freeland for his outstanding leadership in the development of a global array of drifting Argo floats, a major advance in observational oceanography. This work is documented in his paper, co-authored with Patrick Cummins, "Argo: A new tool for environmental monitoring and assessment of the world's oceans, an example from the N. E. Pacific", published in Progress in Oceanography, 2005, vol. 64, pp. 31-44.
To: Andrew John Weaver for his pioneering work in earth system climate modeling and in particular for the article he co-authored in Atmosphere-Ocean entitled "The UVic Earth System Climate Model: Model description, climatology and application to past, present and future climates". The paper has already been cited more than 90 times.

To: Jeffrey Philip Lewis for his important contributions to the improvement of physics in sea ice modelling and to surface albedo effects in deglaciation during his Ph.D. thesis work at the University of Victoria, as documented in his thesis “Snowball earth sensitivity to sea ice and surface albedo”.
To: Chris Fogarty for his pioneering work in modelling extratropical transition events in the North Atlantic, including the implementation of a vortex-insertion scheme and other innovative techniques, during his Ph.D. thesis work at Dalhousie University. Moreover, as an avid observer, he prefers to obtain his environmental information firsthand, and his infectious enthusiasm for the task invariably influences the outcome in a positive way.

MSC Patterson Medal / SMC La medaille Patterson
On May 30th 2007, Charles Lin, Director General, Atmospheric Science and Technology Directorate, Science and Technology Branch Environment Canada, presented the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) Patterson Distinguished Service Medal, MSC's most prestigious award for distinguished service to meteorology in Canada, to George Boer and John Falkingham. The medals were presented on behalf of David Grimes, Acting Assistant Deputy Minister of MSC.
George Boer has contributed to the development of the Canadian global climate model, a product widely recognized as one of the top climate models in the world and is used extensively in the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments. His work has contributed to the stature of Environment Canada, Canada as a whole and to the international climate research community. In addition to this, George has served as a mentor to many scientists now working in both the government and academic sectors.
John Falkingham has served in several key positions at the Canadian Ice Service (CIS) over his career that has spanned decades. He is considered the father of the modern ice service, having steered it into it's transformation from paper to electronics, aircraft to satellite operations. John continues to strive at combining superlative science, the best technology and capable people to deliver excellence in ice information services to mariners, policy makers and the inquiring public. Through his leadership, the CIS has evolved, becoming acknowledged as a worldwide leader in ice forecasting.
DFO Timothy R. Parsons Medal / MPO La médaille Timothy R. Parsons
On June 7, 2007 at the UBC Fisheries Centre in Vancouver, Dr. Wendy Watson-Wright, Assistant Deputy Minister for Science of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) presented the award named for Canadian ocean sciences pioneer Dr. Timothy R. Parsons to Dr. Carl John Walters. Dr. Walters was selected for his career-long contributions, integrating mathematics, fisheries and ecosystem science. He uses mathematical modeling and computer simulation techniques to better understand the dynamics of exploited marine and freshwater ecosystems. Carl's citation reads "for his brilliant analyses of fishery stocks and harvest management and his seminal writings about adaptive management now widely used by ecologists, other scientists and managers throughout the world.
