Professor Lynne Frostick (2021)

The winner this year is Professor Lynne Frostick (University of Hull). Professor Frostick has arguably done more than any other to push the interdisciplinary boundaries of Geomorphology - raising both the importance and profile of our discipline into the wider Geosciences, Engineering and the Social Sciences.

Ellen Wohl (2020)

The David Linton Award for 2020 is given to Professor Ellen Wohl for her outstanding contribution over a sustained period to fluvial research, mentoring and the promotion of the discipline of geomorphology. Professor Wohl is an extremely distinguished geomorphologist who has already received a number of important international accolades and honours including the EGU’s Ralph Alger Bagnold Medal (2017) and the AGU’s GK Gilbert Award (2018).

Tavi Murray (2019)

This year, this prestigious award is made to Professor Tavi Murray, Swansea University who has made significant and sustained contributions to glacial geomorphology through an impressive portfolio of research and publications.

Hervé Piégay (2018)

The David Linton Award is given to a geomorphologist who has made a leading contribution to the discipline over a sustained period. The 2018 Award is made to Hervé Piégay because of his academic contribution to the field of geomorphology and also the way he has promoted geomorphology across Europe and beyond as an essential tool in the diagnosis of river-related problems and their management. Since the award of his PhD in 1995, Hervé Piégay has made many important contributions to fluvial geomorphology.

Tim Burt (2017)

Tim Burt has been awarded the 2017 David Linton award for his sustained contributions to geomorphology. 

Hervé Piégay (2018)

The David Linton Award is given to a geomorphologist who has made a leading contribution to the discipline over a sustained period. The 2018 Award is made to Hervé Piégay because of his academic contribution to the field of geomorphology and also the way he has promoted geomorphology across Europe and beyond as an essential tool in the diagnosis of river-related problems and their management. Since the award of his PhD in 1995, Hervé Piégay has made many important contributions to fluvial geomorphology.

Keith Richards (2015)

The 2015 award to Professor Keith Richards recognises his lifetime of distinguished and influential contributions to geomorphological research and scholarship

Jonathan Phillips (2014)

The 2014 award to Professor Jonathan Phillips (Kentucky) recognises his lifetime of distinguished and influential contributions to fluvial geomorphology spanning a broad array of topics in over 180 papers, including 10 in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. His career has included a combination of thought-provoking methodological and philosophical contributions to geomorphic system understanding and landscape evolution, and empirical contributions across several branches of geomorphology.

Gerald Nanson (2013)

The 2013 award to Professor Gerald Nanson (Wollongong) recognises his lifetime of distinguished and influential contributions to fluvial geomorphology spanning alluvial sedimentation, river pattern classification, river management, desert dune dynamics and Quaternary environmental change. It is the first time that the Linton award has been awarded to a geomorphologist who has done most of their research in Australia.
