2017 William T. Pecora Award Announcement:  Nominations accepted through June 1, 2017

The William T. Pecora Award is presented annually to individuals or groups who have made outstanding contributions toward understanding the Earth by means of remote sensing. The Department of the Interior (DOI) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) jointly sponsor the award.  

The award was established in 1974 to honor the memory of Dr. William T. Pecora, former Director of the U.S. Geological Survey and Under Secretary, Department of the Interior. Dr. Pecora was a motivating force behind the establishment of a program for civil remote sensing of the Earth from space. His early vision and support helped establish what we know today as the Landsat program.

All nominations must be submitted by June 1, 2017.  

Instructions for preparing a nomination and other information about the award can be found on the Pecora Award web site: https://remotesensing.usgs.gov/pecora.php.

About

Landsat represents the world's longest continuously acquired collection of space-based moderate-resolution land remote sensing data. Four decades of imagery provides a unique resource for those who work in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change research. Landsat images are also invaluable for emergency response and disaster relief.
