Maurice Ewing Medal

The Maurice Ewing Medal is given annually to one honoree in recognition for "significant original contributions to the scientific understanding of the processes in the ocean; for the advancement of oceanographic engineering, technology, and instrumentation; and for outstanding service to the marine sciences."

Established in 1974 and jointly sponsored with the United States Navy, the Ewing Medal is named in honor of Maurice Ewing, who made significant contributions to deep-sea exploration. Walter H. Munk was the first recipient of the Ewing Medal.
