merging together the former Swedish National Committee for Geodesy and
Geophysics with the Swedish National Committee for Oceanic Sciences. It
rules under the Class for Geosciences (Class V) of the Royal Swedish Academy
of Sciences. SNG is connected to, and represents Sweden within, the
International Union for Geodesy and Geophysics, IUGG, and the Scientific
Committee on Oceanic Research, SCOR.

Climate, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
"Dahl-Jensen is awarded the prize for her significant contributions
to the ice core drilling programs, especially in Greenland, where
she has developed new methods both for flow modelling and for the
deciphering and determination of the age of climate signals in an
ice sheet. Dorthe Dahl-Jensen has through her leadership developed
the international ice core drilling program and she is an outstanding
representative for Nordic geophysical research at the highest
The award ceremony is planned for the autumn of 2021, pending the
