G.K. Gilbert Award

The G.K. Gilbert Award in Surface Processes is given annually to one honoree in recognition of sustained and outstanding contributions to earth and planetary surface processes. The evaluation of the nominees will be based on (1) a single significant advance or sustained significant contributions to the field of earth and planetary surface processes; and (2) if she/he has also promoted an environment of unselfish cooperation in research and the inclusion of young scientists into the field. This award is named in honor of G.K. Gilbert, who was essentially the founder of modern quantitative geomorphology. The Honors and Recognition Committee approved the award name change, effective in 2014.
