IOTA - Homer F. DaBoll Award 2015
In autumn 2015 an international commitee of the International Occultation Timing Association - IOTA made the decision to present the Homer F. DaBoll Award in the year 2015 to Gerhard Dangl, Austria.
The decision was based on numerous occultation and astrometric measurements and for contributing greatly to the accurate timing of occultations by quantifying and documenting exposure and internal delays in measurement apparatus. Here are some pages showing my self developed measurement devices and the results of the measurements.
The award ceremony was proposed as agenda within the annual meeting 2015 of the IOTA. This annual meeting 2015 of the International Occultation Timing Association - IOTA took place from October 16th to 18th, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Cheyenne campus of the University of Southern Nevada. Because of date reasons and the big distance I could not come to the ceremony to Las Vegas. So I attended the award presentation, which took place on October 16th, 2015 shortly before midnight in Central European time, via video conference.
Here is an extra page of the International Occultation Timing Association with all awards of IOTA so far.
