Mr. Nelson is recognized for his historical review article “A Century of WWV” published in September of 2019 in the Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. His paper demonstrates exemplary writing in measurement services, describing to general audiences the 100-year history of NIST’s short-wave radio station WWV, which provides services directly to millions of people each day. The review serves as the authoritative history of WWV.
