The William Gaskell Medal was awarded annually by the Royal Meteorological Society to a scientist who has distinguished himself in the field of experimental meteorology.

The medal was named in honour of William Gaskell, a meteorologist who was killed with 3 colleagues on a research flight in 1980 and is funded by the Desert Research Institute, Reno, Nevada and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). The recipient was asked to deliver the William Gaskell Memorial Lecture to the society.

It was first presented in 1981 to Peter Ryder of the Meteorological Office.
