Russ DeSouza with students
Do you know someone in the Unidata community who has been actively involved and helpful to
you and other Unidata members? Perhaps this is someone who volunteers to assist others,
contributes software, or makes suggestions that are generally useful for the community.
The Unidata Users Committee invites you to submit nominations for the Russell L. DeSouza
Award for Outstanding Community Service. This Community Service Award honors individuals
whose energy, expertise, and active involvement enable the Unidata Program to better serve
the geosciences. Honorees personify Unidata's ideal of a community that shares ideas, data,
and software through computing and networking technologies. While direct involvement in the
Unidata community is one avenue by which such a contribution may be made, this is not a
requirement — the distinguishing ethos of awardees is their contribution and dedication to
accessible and reproducible science and education in the geosciences.
