The 2012 award to Professor Angela Gurnell (School of Geography, Queen Mary, University of London) recognises particularly her work on the role of vegetation in fluvial environments.

Professor Gurnell was presented with her award by BSG President Ken Gregory at theBSG Annual Conference at Nottingham (25-27th June 2012).

The Linton award is given primarily for research contributions, and the awards committee now requires that the publications of successful nominees meet several demanding metrics. Professor Gurnell has an outstanding publication record including 10 edited books and special issues, more than 130 refereed journal papers, 29 chapters in edited works, and 35 refereed conference papers. Her scientific contributions have developed from vegetation influence on dynamic contributing areas, to proglacial stream systems, to coarse woody debris in river channels and associated aquatic habitats, biological influences on river channel patterns and riparian development especially of the Tagliamento, and habitat survey and urban rivers. As her research has evolved she has maintained a strong emphasis upon field data collection, on the innovative of application of statistical techniques, on multidisciplinary research and upon investigations which are relevant to management problems. Her publications in all these areas have achieved considerable international acclaim with invitations to participate in multidisciplinary international conferences so that without doubt she is now recognised as an outstanding geomorphologist.
