36774 Kuittinen           Discovered 2000 Sept. 5 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Asteroid Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Risto Kuittinen (b. 1946) was Director General of the Finnish Geodetic Institute during 1998--2011. He has devised remote-sensing techniques for snow and hydrology, in particular, for measuring the snow-water equivalent. He is a member of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters. Name suggested by K. Muinonen and M. Poutanen.
