The initial principal of this endowment was contributed by family, friends and colleagues, as well as John and Sandra Wyngaard. The endowment was established in the name of John C. Wyngaard, Professor Emeritus, in honor of his manifold contributions to the atmospheric sciences and particularly his mentorship of students in atmospheric turbulence and boundary layer meteorology. John was involved in three national laboratories and served for two decades as a senior member of the faculty in Penn State's Department of Meteorology, where he opened new lines of inquiry, successfully addressed challenging problems in the field, and wisely counseled colleagues and students.
The purpose of this award shall be to honor and recognize outstanding research by a graduate student majoring in Meteorology in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at Penn State, University Park.
