Barbara J. Ryan received the 2018 Pecora Award for advancing the global use and application of satellite data.

Two awardees have been recognized with the 2018 William T. Pecora Award for achievements in Earth remote sensing. Barbara J. Ryan was honored for her many contributions, including promoting public access to Earth observation data. The Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) international team also was recognized for significant contributions to advancing atmospheric monitoring for the human health, air quality and natural hazards communities.

Sponsored by USGS and NASA, the annual award has been presented since 1974 and honors the memory of William T. Pecora, former USGS director and Department of the Interior undersecretary. Formal presentation to both recipients of the 2018 Pecora Award will occur at a future venue.

Nominations for the 2019 William T. Pecora Award are now open and due May 15, 2019. Detailed instructions and other information about the award can be found on the Pecora Award website.
