The BSG makes a number of annual awards and honours. Click on the links below to read more about these and to nominate a candidate where applicable.
The David Linton Award
The David Linton Award is given to a geomorphologist who has made a leading contribution to the discipline over a sustained period. The winner is invited to present the Linton Lecture, which is one of the central elements of the AGM.
The Gordon Warwick Medal
The Gordon Warwick Award is made for excellence in geomorphological research by someone within 15 years of being awarded their doctorate (i.e. time since graduation).
The Dick Chorley Medal for Postgraduate Research
One of Dick Chorley’s lasting contributions to geomorphology lies in the post-graduate students whom he inspired and guided at the start of their academic careers. Many have gone on to academic careers themselves, and include several of the leading figures in British geomorphology. In recognition of Dick’s commitment to serving the future of the discipline, the BSG has decided to honour his memory by creating the Dick Chorley Medal and Prize (£500) for Postgraduate Research.
Wiley - Blackwell Award
The Wiley Award is given to the best paper published in the BSG's Journal Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. The paper is selected from the volume of the journal for the given year of the Award.
Marjorie Sweeting Dissertation Prize
This is presented to the best undergraduate geomorphological dissertation undertaken at a UK university.
