The 2018 Wiley award for the best paper published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms, 2017 (volume 42), is made to Dr Bradley Johnson of Davidson College North Carolina for his paper entitled "A chronology of post‐glacial landslides suggests that slight increases in precipitation could trigger a disproportionate geomorphic response" (ESPL 42: 2223-2239) https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/esp.4168#. The paper is a fascinating demonstration of how the combination and application of high quality dating methods at the Holocene timescale can be used to understand the magnitude and frequency of geomorphic processes, in this case the frequency of deep-seated landslides. In this case, it was shown that only subtle increases in precipitation could increase landslide frequency as a result of the preconditioning of hillslopes to failure by glacial debuttressting.
