The European Meteorological Society and the Tromp Foundation collaborate on the EMS Tromp Award to promote Biometeorology in Europe and within the EMS community.
The Tromp Foundation (Foundation for Biometeorological Research), the legacy of Solco W. Tromp, is funding this new award. The award is announced annually and was given the first time in 2015.
