From: Murray Lark, Chair Pedometrics Committee on Prizes and Awards

The Margaret Oliver Award is made biennially by the Pedometrics Commission of the International Union of Soil Sciences.  The award is named in honour of Professor Margaret Oliver, and to mark her particular commitment to developing and supporting young pedometricians. The award is made to an early-career scientist, active in pedometrics and in promoting and supporting the discipline who, at the time of nomination (February 2019), had held the degree of PhD for less than six years.  In 2019 a total of six candidates were nominated for the award, a measure of the enthusiasm and energy within pedometrics, and the diversity and geographical spread of its practitioners.

It is my great pleasure, as Chair of the Awards Committee of the Pedometrics Commission, to announce that the committee has made the 2019 Margaret Oliver Award to Dr Vera Leatitia (Titia) Mulder, assistant professor in the Soil Geography and Landscape group at Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
