The Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal is awarded to Prof. Pinhas Alpert for the creation of novel approaches to investigate synergistic processes in the atmosphere and to monitor air moisture and flash floods employing cellular systems. Also, for his outstanding contribution to the study of cyclones and aerosols.

    The Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal is awarded to Pinhas Alpert for his outstanding contributions to atmospheric dynamics and aerosol science. Pinhas Alpert is the creator of the Factor Separation (FS) Method which led to an in-depth understanding of the synergising effect of atmospheric factors used for the studies of weather, climate and other. Jacob Bjerknes is credited with determining the link between El Niño and and the Southern Oscillation. Son of the world renowned meteorologist Vilhelm Bjerknes, Jacob Bjerknes is primarily recognized for his work in developing the theoretical cyclone model as part of the "Bergen School" during the 's.

On November 2,Bjerknes' son Jacob was born. Jacob would later collaborate with his father and become a famous meteorologist in his own right, discovering the mechanism that controls the behavior of mid-latitude cyclones. In a programmatic paper published inBjerknes proposed the procedure now known as numerical weather : Steve Graham.

W'hen Vilhelm Bjerknes turned his scientific efforts towards hydrodynamics, loyalty and piety to his father did play a role. Godske (), m his book about weather prediction, wrote This feeling of piety was surely partly a strength of Vilhelm Bjerknes, but maybe also his biggest weakness as a scientist.
