The G.K. Gilbert Award in Surface Processes is presented annually and recognizes sustained and outstanding contributions to the field of Earth and planetary surface processes from a mid-career or senior scientist. Notable contributions can include the honoree’s single significant advance or sustained contributions to the field, and unselfish cooperation in research and the inclusion of early-career scientists in the field.
Renamed in 2014, this award honors G.K. Gilbert, a pioneer in modern quantitative geomorphology. The award is presented at the ticketed Earth and Planetary Surface Processes section event during the AGU Fall Meeting.
